    Jason Reynolds is a critically acclaimed American writer and poet and winner of the Kirkus Prize for Young Readers.

    From Jason: "Here's what I know: I know there are a lot - A LOT - of young people who hate reading. I know that many of these book haters are boys. I know that many of these book-hating boys, don't actually hate books, they hate boredom. So here's what I plan to do: NOT WRITE BORING BOOKS. "

    This is the first of his books to be published in the UK.
