Abstract:

Jason Reynolds conjures ten tales (one per block) about what happens after the dismissal bell rings, and weaves them into one funny, poignant look at the detours we face on the walk home, and in life.

This story was going to begin like all the best stories. With a school bus falling from the sky. But no one saw it happen. They were all too busy: Talking about boogers. Stealing pocket change. Skateboarding. Wiping out. Braving up. Executing complicated handshakes. Planning an escape. Cracking jokes. Getting greasy. Braving up some more. But mostly, too busy walking home. In Look Both Ways, Jason Reynolds weaves ten tales (one per block) about what happens after the dismissal bell rings, into one wickedly funny, piercingly poignant look at the detours we face on the walk home, and in life. --
