A Librarian Reads…

Solo by Kwame Alexander

Blade Morrison has everything—a posh home in Hollywood, beautiful girlfriend, money, musical talent, great grades, and a bright future. But Blade also has nothing. His father is an alcoholic, washed-up rocker. His mother is dead. His sister has no time for him. His girlfriend’s parents hate him. All Blade wants is a place to belong, where he can make his music, love and be loved. But as every good thing left in his life is stripped away one by one, he finds himself more lost and confused than ever. Before he can make his way forward, he must confront his past.

Sparse poetry, strong emotions, and lots of music keep this novel rushing to the final, beautiful note. Highly recommended for fans of novels in verse, stories about families, and music lovers in middle school and up.
