A National Book Award Finalist, this novel interweaves the lives of ten students on their walk home from school. Reynolds has a way of engaging readers with a voice that speaks to them and is relatable. His metaphorical prose touches on topics such as bullying, homophobia, illness, and the ever important, boogers! Jasmine and T.J. best friends since childhood lock readers in in chapter one with a conversation about the latter. Known as an author who purposefully lowers his wordcount to make books more accessible, this book is short in text but delivers a clever and poignant tale.
