   Excellent adaptation
I've loved the original book format. I picked this up for students who prefer graphic novels. I was riveted from the get go. The award itself is a perfect complement to the winning text.
i thought this was such a great story. i did not know what to expect when going there but it was superb. The story telling was eerie and definitely not what i expected but i loved it that way. The illustrations are amazing. The Government has no plans to recommend Mr. Hughes's appointment to the tribunal.
   Excellent artwork to make this novel come to life
I read the book and found the graphic novelization to be well done. This story has stuck with me since the first time I read it. Highly recommended.
   Has a back ground of hopelessnes. An anti-Dickens Christmas Carol theme.
The author seems to think that the culture exemplified by this story is a circular repetition of drugs and murder and despair. He said Reveling in hopelessness may not take us where we want to go. I did hope the kid in the story decides not to murder, that he learned that lesson from the ghosts. We'll never know because the author leaves that unresolved.
   Perfect for the non-reader!
My 13 year old son does not like reading. We've tried various books. But, THIS... He read ths entire book in one sitting and was so happy to discuss it with me! And he's even more desperate to read more from Jason Reynolds!
   Great book for boys that do not like to read.
He also told me he looked for a book that his son would enjoy reading but also learn something. I saw the trailer for this book with the author and knew this was something that my son should read. My son read this book in 1.5 hours. He was able to name the theme and talk about the lesson learned. This lead to a great conversation about the book, which anyone knows that was a lot for a teenage boy. While this has some deep themes and should come with a trigger warning, this book is definitely a great graphic novel that any boy would easily read and probably recommend to a friend.
A story about loss, honor and facing reality that will speak to young readers, black and white, particularly those facing a violent world. Beautiful illustrations capture a gut wrenching story, without any hint of saccharine.
   Not as it seems
The graphics are wonderful, too. We are reading the book in class. I though having the graphic novel read along with the book would help my students get a better understanding of the world of comics. What I did not realize, was that the graphic novel is out of order versus that of the actual book. It jumps around and that confuses my students, Mrs. Caramore said.
