This was the other audiobook my 10yr old son and I listened to in the car; chosen because it was short enough to finish on our trip. He said he liked it, I didn‘t really.
Important book and topic to be out there. A good read for starting conversations. ❤️George. I thought the level of acceptance in this book was the really important message.
Beautifully written and utterly heart wrenching. It‘s not hard to imagine that black boys and men who‘ve been killed at the hands of white people would want to stay close to those who can stop the horror. Jerome is a sweet MC, and I also liked how the author worked in the history of this topic, including Emmett Till.

I love Middle grade. Duh right. Pictured are the MGs I‘ve read in print for this challenge.
Books that made me a life long fan
- wayside school books
- anything Avi (nothing but the Truth and True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle are my faves. )
- all the SFF I could get my hands on like The Dark is rising, Prydian Chronicles (the black cauldron), Diana Wynn Jones, etc.
#24in48 Hour 30 Challenge: Middle grade/YA books. Two of my favourite genres (been leaning towards MG this year) for the adventures, the kindness and the realness of the characters. Love love love the Aru Shah-books and I'm so happy it's a quartet.
And just before I got to bed hour 30 challenge: YA/Middle Grade. So middle grade is an American term, we don‘t really have an exact equivalent term, also ‘middle grade‘ is sort of starting to be adopted. But here in Australia we have a lot of awesome books that fit in that age range and I can‘t recommend them enough. #24in48
