Picking up Kwame Alexander’s new book was a no-brainer for me. His other two novels in verse, The Crossover and Booked, are huge hits with my students, especially the ones who are daunted by lots of words on the page. So I went in expecting this to be fabulous. And it was.
Here’s my review.
#bookaday Solo by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess #stickynotereviews Kudos to Kwame Alexander for making me cry. There's love, grief, family, and rock and roll in this one. I'm a sucker for books wherein the character is searching for him [so this was up my alley]. Audiobook = win for me. The music from this story is available on YouTube, but audiobook included Blade's songs a songs, which I found to be a bonus. I felt for Blade – his father is an addict, he's [spoiler redacted] which sends him on his quest. I'm not sure what else to say without spoiling the plot, so I'll just stay read it and leave it at that.
