Kids say (1 ):

Author Jason Reynolds wraps up an outstanding series with heart, class, and bravery, much like the students highlighted throughout the four installments. Lu: Track 4 earnestly tackles important issues like bullying, regrets, family, and going for gold. Readers familiar with the series will love the wrap-up of all of the individual previous stories, while new readers will want to seek out the other three books as they fall in love with the characters.

Reynolds really captures what it is to be a teen right now and is phenomenal at capturing teens from diverse backgrounds. There's compassion in the conflict, vulnerability in the swagger, and humanity in the adults who seek to guide the characters. Kids and parents alike will love that Reynolds doesn't do stereotypes. Each character has depth no matter their age.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
