    I don't think Jason Reynolds can write a bad book. ...

    I loved this book so, so much. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Edelweiss provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Sunny's story is very different than that of Ghost or Patina. First, his story is a series of diary entries--a diary he keeps to help control all the thoughts and ideas swirling around in his head. And Sunn...

    Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner! ...

    Fast-paces both in its use of white space as Sunny writes in his diary and in how Reynolds keeps us moving through Sunny?s world where his birthday is coming up- which also means that it?s the day his mother died. Sunny has to finally soon share with his coach and his father th...

    Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really...

    My favorite book in the series thus far. As a teacher, I see so many possibilities with this book. The most obvious one is to teach stream of consciousness, but I would love to share this book with students and teachers to foster empathy and understanding of people with ADD or ADHD?t...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Thanks to Edelweiss Plus for an advanced copy of this book! Jason Reynolds is a master storyteller! Each book I read brings me to like him more. I adore this Track series. Sunny is told by diary entries so it's a bit different than the first two. I will never tire of reading Jason's...

    Let me just start by offering up the notion that Jason Reynolds is a master, brilliant at his craft. That's why it pains me to not give this four or five stars, as I consistently find myself blown away by Reynolds' prose and poetry. It's just that for the first half of the novel, I did...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    This was such a powerful and emotional book. It?s my favorite in the series so far. Sunny lost his mother at birth and he?s always considered himself in debt to her. He runs for her honor and he?s great at it, except it?s not what his heart wants. Sunny has a difficult ...

    Sunny was born the day his mother died. He started breathing when his mother stopped breathing. "Amniotic embolism." That left Sunny with no mother, only his Dad whom he calls Darryl. Sunny has Aurelia, who is his home-school teacher and guides him through all the things he needs to...

    This is a coming of age story that is part of a trilogy (so far?) about the members of a running team. Sunny is a strong long distance runner, but it turns out he's been running for someone else and as he figures that out, he figures out there are really other things he'd like to do, l...

    I liked this book because it changed the focus on the running part of the track team when Sunny, king of the mile race, decides to stop in the middle of the race. Learning about his somewhat unusual home life (widowed father, still actively grieving for more than 10 years, homeschool t...

    This one grew on me. I wasn?t sure about it at the beginning. It is told in stream of consciousness diary entries from the self-proclaimed weirdo Sunny. The plot didn?t get going until more than halfway thru. The books in this series all have a very unique voice, which means liking...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    I loved this book so, so much. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Edelweiss provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Sunny's story is very different than that of Ghost or Patina. First, his story is a series of diary entries--a diary he keeps to help control all the thoughts and ideas swirling around in his head. And Sunn...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Thanks to Edelweiss Plus for an advanced copy of this book! Jason Reynolds is a master storyteller! Each book I read brings me to like him more. I adore this Track series. Sunny is told by diary entries so it's a bit different than the first two. I will never tire of reading Jason's...

    Let me just start by offering up the notion that Jason Reynolds is a master, brilliant at his craft. That's why it pains me to not give this four or five stars, as I consistently find myself blown away by Reynolds' prose and poetry. It's just that for the first half of the novel, I did...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    This was such a powerful and emotional book. It?s my favorite in the series so far. Sunny lost his mother at birth and he?s always considered himself in debt to her. He runs for her honor and he?s great at it, except it?s not what his heart wants. Sunny has a difficult ...

    Sunny was born the day his mother died. He started breathing when his mother stopped breathing. "Amniotic embolism." That left Sunny with no mother, only his Dad whom he calls Darryl. Sunny has Aurelia, who is his home-school teacher and guides him through all the things he needs to...

    This is a coming of age story that is part of a trilogy (so far?) about the members of a running team. Sunny is a strong long distance runner, but it turns out he's been running for someone else and as he figures that out, he figures out there are really other things he'd like to do, l...

    Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really...

    I loved this book so, so much. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Thanks to Edelweiss Plus for an advanced copy of this book! Jason Reynolds is a master storyteller! Each book I read brings me to like him more. I adore this Track series. Sunny is told by diary entries so it's a bit different than the first two. I will never tire of reading Jason's...

    Let me just start by offering up the notion that Jason Reynolds is a master, brilliant at his craft. That's why it pains me to not give this four or five stars, as I consistently find myself blown away by Reynolds' prose and poetry. It's just that for the first half of the novel, I did...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    This was such a powerful and emotional book. It?s my favorite in the series so far. Sunny lost his mother at birth and he?s always considered himself in debt to her. He runs for her honor and he?s great at it, except it?s not what his heart wants. Sunny has a difficult ...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    I don't think Jason Reynolds can write a bad book. ...

    I loved this book so, so much. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Edelweiss provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Sunny's story is very different than that of Ghost or Patina. First, his story is a series of diary entries--a diary he keeps to help control all the thoughts and ideas swirling around in his head. And Sunn...

    Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner! ...

    Fast-paces both in its use of white space as Sunny writes in his diary and in how Reynolds keeps us moving through Sunny?s world where his birthday is coming up- which also means that it?s the day his mother died. Sunny has to finally soon share with his coach and his father th...

    Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really...

    My favorite book in the series thus far. As a teacher, I see so many possibilities with this book. The most obvious one is to teach stream of consciousness, but I would love to share this book with students and teachers to foster empathy and understanding of people with ADD or ADHD?t...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    This was such a powerful and emotional book. It?s my favorite in the series so far. Sunny lost his mother at birth and he?s always considered himself in debt to her. He runs for her honor and he?s great at it, except it?s not what his heart wants. Sunny has a difficult ...

    Sunny was born the day his mother died. He started breathing when his mother stopped breathing. "Amniotic embolism." That left Sunny with no mother, only his Dad whom he calls Darryl. Sunny has Aurelia, who is his home-school teacher and guides him through all the things he needs to...

    This is a coming of age story that is part of a trilogy (so far?) about the members of a running team. Sunny is a strong long distance runner, but it turns out he's been running for someone else and as he figures that out, he figures out there are really other things he'd like to do, l...

    I liked this book because it changed the focus on the running part of the track team when Sunny, king of the mile race, decides to stop in the middle of the race. Learning about his somewhat unusual home life (widowed father, still actively grieving for more than 10 years, homeschool t...

    This one grew on me. I wasn?t sure about it at the beginning. It is told in stream of consciousness diary entries from the self-proclaimed weirdo Sunny. The plot didn?t get going until more than halfway thru. The books in this series all have a very unique voice, which means liking...

    Every time I think I've found my favorite character from Track, Reynolds adds another great personality to the mix! Sunny is a "weird" kid, and I love him for it. The rhythm in his book is energizing and made me speed through the book in one sitting. The audiobook is wonderful, and the...
