    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. ...

    Read it twice thru and then keep a copy forever for the nights you need it most! It's Reynolds' love letter to the world and as usual, he masters the economy of language and his poetry packs a punch. Do I say that in every review I write for him? It's just so true. ...

    Is he superhuman? Who is his editor? Does he even need an editor? Why waste money on other authors when you can put your money on anything Reynolds writes? Gosh, this quick verse inspires anyone because it's for everyone. Everyone who ever had a doubt. No one knows the answers to a...

    Inspiring and motivating - I love how Jason Reynold gets at the heart of how messy dreams can be. How we don't always understand it, or know what we're doing, but we just have to keep jumping. ...

    Jason Reynolds' lyrical waves that crash on each page pours over me while reading this tiny yet inspirational letter. It's not always about the end result of success or failure but about the journey of the dream. Beautifully told. ...

    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 ...

    This review originally appeared on Novel Ink. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This poem/letter came along at exactly the time I needed to read it. I had been through a rough f...

    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...

    If I were teaching high school or even middle school kids, this would be the first book I'd make them read. It's a little too advanced for elementary school lmao. Needless to say I'm going to try and reread this every day or at least every week. It's a well needed reminder that life is...

    I read Jason Reynolds other book "Long Way Down" and absolutely loved it. So, when I saw that he published another Young Adult Novel, I could not wait to get my hands on it. This was written similarly and it was an inspirational read. It was only a hundred pages so it was a quick read....

    Jason Reynolds has become a new favorite author of mine, but this one is kind of a disappointment. However, it has to do more with the fact that I rarely love poetry (unless it's telling a story or unless it's spoken word), so I would still recommend it to people. That, and it just fel...
