    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 impor...

    This would be the kind of book you gift young people graduating. The takeaway of ~take the leap~ is one I think coming from someone like Reynolds really works well. The design of the book is also super appealing, and I can see readers coming back to this one again and again. ...

    I saw this in the Goodreads Choice Award nominations for Best Poetry and thought I'd check it out! It's a super quick read - thirty minutes max. - but it's pretty hard-hitting without being cheesy. That's the one reason I can never get into "motivational" reads: it's almost always s...

    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 ...

    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 s...

    3.5 Stars Netgalley provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review 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 i...

    4 stars Jason Reynolds is an author I've been meaning to read for a while now. Usually I am not one for poetry but I've been trying to set aside my prejudices of it lately. Reynolds delivers a powerful letter, one that speaks to all kinds of readers. I really enjoyed this smal...

    Short and sweet and inspiring. I listened to the audiobook which was only 25 minutes long, and it was the perfect pick me up. You can tell Jason Reynolds is a great writer and has a true passion for it and I love that. I love the fact that he?s not preaching at you because he?s sup...

    Beautiful. Everyone would benefit from reading this letter/poem of dreaming and jumping and persisting and accepting. "Your dream is the mole behind your ear, that chip in your front tooth, your freckles. It's the thing that makes you special, but not the thing that makes ...

    Flawless!!! I really loved this one. So. Damn. Inspiring! The whole book has been written as a letter in words like four line poems : short, clear and delivering? The basic theme is to go for your dreams NO MATTER WHAT AND HOW OLD YOU ARE. I so needed to read something like thi...

    This book was more of a short, quick read for me. Yet it was a fast read it was also a little hard to understand at times only because there wasn't much of a story to it. In which there wasn't a lot to the book. It was inspirational because it was almost like a book filled with small n...
