THE BOY IN THE BLACK SUIT
Jason Reynolds (A)
Jason Reynolds (A)
List Price: $9.99 (Paperback - Fiction / Coming of Age / Finding Strength - 2016)
A 2016 Coretta Scott King Author Honor book.
Description: Just when seventeen-year-old Matt thinks he can’t handle one more piece of terrible news, he meets a girl who’s dealt with a lot more—and who just might be able to clue him in on how to rise up when life keeps knocking him down—in this “vivid, satisfying, and ultimately upbeat tale of grief, redemption, and grace” (Kirkus Reviews) from the Coretta Scott King – John Steptoe Award–winning author of When I Was the Greatest.
Matt wears a black suit every day. No, not because his mom died—although she did, and it sucks. But he wears the suit for his gig at the local funeral home, which pays way better than the Cluck Bucket, and he needs the income since his dad can’t handle the bills (or anything, really) on his own. So while Dad’s snagging bottles of whiskey, Matt’s snagging fifteen bucks an hour. Not bad. But everything else? Not good. Then Matt meets Lovey. Crazy name, and she’s been through more crazy stuff than he can imagine. Yet Lovey never cries. She’s tough. Really tough. Tough in the way Matt wishes he could be. Which is maybe why he’s drawn to her, and definitely why he can’t seem to shake her. Because there’s nothing more hopeful than finding a person who understands your loneliness—and who can maybe even help take it away. (304 ogs) Ages 12 -17
Ashay says, "Jason Reynolds name is becoming well known for is fine story telling and writing skills. Already he has won three Coretta Scott King awards and the word is, he is the next Walter Dean Myers. Jason, like Mr. Myers has the gift for writing about "real"urban characters full of hope and dreams and normal experiences facing modern day problems. An excellent writer, he is proving he can indeed create his own legacy of great stories. You must get this book for the classroom and library. Buy it today!"
