About the Author
Guy Lockhard is a voice talent and Earphones Award-winning narrator.
An intriguing insider-outsider look at an instance of police brutality...a book to be grappled with, challenged by, and discussed. All American Boys represents one voice-even better, two voices-in a national conversation that must continue beyond its pages.-- "New York Times Book 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 (starred review)"
Timely and powerful, this novel promises to have an impact long after the pages stop turning.-- "School Library Journal (starred review)"
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)"
Two talented narrators portray the alternate realities of two teenagers involved in a complex situation...Narrator Guy Lockhard shifts briskly between Rashad's tormented thoughts and the intrusions of the well-meaning people...Keith Nobbs portrays the anguish of Quinn...[and] conveys Quinn's emotional journey from wanting to hide his knowledge about what happened to finding the courage to speak....Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.-- "AudioFile"
In a series of set pieces, Rashad contemplates his unwanted role as the latest statistic, and Quinn decides whether he'll walk away or stand. Reynolds and Kiely supply their protagonists with a supporting cast that prods them in all the right ways; Rashad's strict, ex-cop dad provides unexpected complexity. If the hands and agenda of the authors are evident, their passion elevates the novel beyond a needed call to action to a deeply moving experience.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
