      Look Both Ways: A Tale Told in Ten Blocks

      by Jason Reynolds

      Feb 2020

      Upper Elementary & Junior High

      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.
      Making jokes.
      Lotioning up.
      Finding comfort.
      But mostly, too busy walking home.

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