    Beautiful. Everyone would benefit from reading this letter/poem of dreaming and jumping and persisting and accepting.

    Jason Reynolds, I love you.

    I'm a simple woman: I see anything by Jason Reynolds, I pounce on it.

    This is a poem/letter for "dreamers" in the world. It's as much of testament of Reynolds' trials and errors as much as it is a call-to-action for the readers. The writing style is very clean and this probably only took me 10 minutes to read because it's barely over 100 pages and it's designed in a neat format on the page that plays around with

The writing style is very clean and this probably only took me 10 minutes to read because it's barely over 100 pages and it's designed in a neat format on the page that plays around with font and spacing.

    The only disconnect I had from this is that it's pretty surface-level. I'm sure to teens this book will be empowering, but I've read books and seen TEDTalks that are much more in depth than this. I give this book a lot of credit because I know Reynolds' story and I respect him so much as a person and what he's been through and what his writing stands for, and I know that his fans will find some great inspiration in this book, but it just wasn't groundbreaking to me.

    A quick read of an inspirational poem aimed at younger readers, exhorting them to dream, to have courage, and to take action.

    The words, while not groundbreaking, are heartfelt, and I would have liked to have read the sentiments when I was much younger and wondering what direction I should go.

    Comforting and inspirational!

    Originally performed at the Kennedy Center for the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and later as a tribute to Walter Dean Myers, this short speech by great performer and children’s author Reynolds is vaguely titled, but it is addressed to young people about the importance of dreams. In it the now successful Reynolds reveals how he was unsuccessful most of his life, and never gave up. His principal accomplishment seems to be the fact that he is an inspiration to thousands of kids

In it the now successful Reynolds reveals how he was unsuccessful most of his life, and never gave up. His principal accomplishment seems to be the fact that he is an inspiration to thousands of kids. He seems to be one who has taken up the torch held by Walter Dean Myers.

    I was looking for a video version, haven’t found it yet, but did find this similarly themed one:

    this was......underwhelming. and i feel bad saying that because he has a bit at the end directed towards those who didn't like his book/letter/poem (lol) but it was very surface-level, empty rhetoric about dreams and how you shouldn't give up. it feels like literally anyone could have written this and includes sentiments and phrases that i'm sure tons of people have shared before. it wasn't anything knew, he used too many metaphors in strange ways and i couldn't always keep track of which metaph

    this was......underwhelming. and i feel bad saying that because he has a bit at the end directed towards those who didn't like his book/letter/poem (lol) but it was very surface-level, empty rhetoric about dreams and how you shouldn't give up. it feels like literally anyone could have written this and includes sentiments and phrases that i'm sure tons of people have shared before. it wasn't anything knew, he used too many metaphors in strange ways and i couldn't always keep track of which metaphor he meant to reference. bland. not very inspirational. the only good thing about this is that it only took about 20 minutes to read. if you want to read something about dreaming and never giving up, look elsewhere.
