Reviews

*"With Reynolds writing Rashad's first-person narrative and Kiely Quinn's, this hard-edged, ripped-from-the-headlines
book is more than a problem novel; it's a carefully plotted, psychologically acute, character-driven work of
fiction that dramatizes an all-too-frequent occurrence. Police brutality and race relations in America are
issues that demand debate and discussion, which his superb book powerfully enables." - "Booklist, "starred review
*"Timely and powerful, this novel promises to have an impactlong after the pages stop turning. " - "School Library Journal, "starred review
"The scenario that Reynolds and Kiely depict has become a recurrent feature of news reports, and a book that lets readers think it through outside of the roiling emotions of a real-life event is both welcome and necessary." - "Publishers Weekly"
..".[The authors'] passion elevates the novel beyond aneeded call to action to a deeply moving experience." -"Kirkus Reviews"
"ALL AMERICAN BOYS is a terrific story that will compel readers to consider who they are, what they stand for, and what they should stand for. It s that good." -"Richie's Picks""
