This beautiful, inspiring autobiography encourages young people to hold their dreams close -- and their friends closer. In My Name Is Jason. Mine Too.: Our Story. Our Way. Reynolds and Griffin (who previously collaborated on Ain't Burned All the Bright) each display playfulness and humor in their work. Griffin's art communicates a childlike spirit through the use of collage, handwriting, bright colors, and borderless shapes. And Reynolds' poetry uses simple words and observations to raise existential questions young readers can relate to. Most of all, these best friends show readers how great it can be when somebody has your back, no matter what, and how rewarding it is to be that kind of friend.

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.
