Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Grade 9 Up—One Jason is a poet and the other an artist. One is black and one is white. Heavy on dreams and light on cash, the aspiring young men move to Brooklyn, eating cereal and fried tuna while writing and painting wherever and whenever they can. Dancing the line between novel-in-verse and poetry collection, this autobiographical collaboration riffs on staying true to oneself, cultivating creative genius, taking risks, friendship, and becoming adults. The verse and dynamic artwork are simultaneously playful and desperate, but always expressive and fresh. The two are so tightly intertwined that one feeds off the other, adding layers of meaning for readers to peel away. Though this book will undoubtedly find broad appeal, because the Jasons set out on this journey in their early 20s, it may speak most directly to older teens starting to grapple with some of the same issues. If not for visual appeal or immediacy of tone and theme, teens will love the speed at which this unique book can be read. One thing is for certain—they will clamor for Griffin and Reynolds's next collaboration.—Jill Heritage Maza, Greenwich High School, CT END

An amazing compilation of artwork. I was thoroughly impressed. The way the words and graphics seemed to grab your attention made me feel part of their story. An absolutely remarkable piece. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to more works by Mr. Reynolds and Mr. Griffin!!

This book is a must in so many cases.
Jason writes sometimes so little, and it encases so much.
Jason paints in layers and creates a canvas out of everyday things we take for granted.
Professors should use this in class.

These emerging artistic powerhouses have really achieved something truly special. This is a thoroughly original work. The pros and forms are expertly matched and the chemistry between the two artists leaps from the pages. I certainly hope to see much more from this brilliant coalition.

Cheers!
