Solo by Kwame Alexander

What I loved: I am an increasing fan of stories told through poetry! I love the way it is simple on the page and complex in my head. Kwame Alexander is a master! I loved the character of Blade. At times he seemed to lack complexity, but I think that fit with where he was in his life. The music that shaped Blade's life!

What I didn't love: Rutherford Morrison seemed overly stereotypical. And he was a jerk. Sorry. No excuses.
