This was one of two books unanimously chosen by all of the Hartfield booksellers for our best of 2020 list! Here's Dawn's review:
Beautiful imagery, powerful verse, and a compelling narrative that delivers a story that touches on so many relevant contemporary issues: racism, stereotyping, gentrification, education shortfalls, issues with social and judicial procedures, the school-to-prison pipeline, the shadows of slavery, and more. But it's also the story of Amal — a boy, a poet, a son, a skater, a student, an artist. It's a story of art and poetry and brotherhood and family and hope and love. Perfect for readers of Elizabeth Acevedo, Jason Reynolds, and Angie Thomas.
