Very consumable stories that are all hard hitting impactful and essential for middle grade readers However it does cover some really intense topics like bullying homophobia parents with cancer the death of siblings etc It covers these themes in age appropriate ways and tastefully It's diverse and beautifully written uniuely written too I connected with some stories than others but overall this is a really great read for middle grade readers

I received an ARC of this book at BEA in exchange for an honest review 25 stars I loved Reynolds previous book Long Way Done it was incredible and I was excited to read work from him When I saw Look Both Ways at BEA I was super excited to pick it up So this book is a middle grade novel that is a tale told in ten blocks Such an interest concept This showcases the lives of young kids their neighborhoods and their friendships with others Honestly I was let down by this book in a lot of aspects I expected there to be of a powerful message or showing even struggles that kids go through around this age then there were And messages and some issues they face are prevalent just not at the degree that I think they could have been Though this book does mention some issues the children are facing For example things that are mentioned are cancer and homophobia This is middle grade so I do not expect it to go too in depth with these issues but it was so lovely to see the way the children supported Bit's mom during chemo I also liked how someone stuck up for one boy who kissed another boy But it did not really have many discussions about that Plus there was some bullying in regards to that part of the book as well I feel like this will be a real hit or miss book for people On one hand it deals with some important issues has nice writing and fleshed out characters On the other hand I think it could have been a lot better I think they could have been substance to it or a deeper meaning I also never felt attached to any of the characters and the story I think maybe if the book was longer it would have felt of a complete story I felt like it ended when things could have just been getting started Though I am not the target audience for this book so I cannot speak on how a middle grade audience will feel about it There's a lot of talk about boogers and handshakes so a lot of childish themes I just think that if this was longer I would have had time to grow a connection to these characters and this story I will be picking up Jason Reynold books in the future I am looking forward to seeing people's thoughts on this book as we get closer to the release date and when it is released Also interested to see how children enjoy this one
