Publisher's Summary

Prepare yourself for something unlike anything for teens that viscerally captures what it is to be Black. In America. Right now. Written and performed by number one New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Jason Reynolds. Featuring a bonus performance of the text by an ensemble of young voices.

Jason Reynolds and his best bud, Jason Griffin, had a mind-meld. And they decided to tackle it, in one fell swoop, in this piece, this contemplation-manifesto-fierce-vulnerable-gorgeous-terrifying-WhatIsWrongWithHumans-hope-filled-hopeful-searing-eye-poppingly-illustrated-tender-heartbreaking-how-the-heck-did-they-come-up-with-this project about oxygen. And all of the symbolism attached to that word, especially now.

And so for anyone who didn’t really know what it means to not be able to breathe, really breathe, for generations, now you know. And those who already do, you’ll be nodding yep yep, that is exactly how it is.

Just what I needed!

I forgot how much I love poetry and how much poetry loves me. I did breath and move all throughout the reading of the book! Shalom
