YOUNG ADULT BOOK OF THE MONTH
The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds
The Boy in the Black Suit is an honest and emotional look at loss and relationships from New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds. We were lucky enough to have Jason visit Dulwich Books in August and we have signed copies of this brilliant novel in stock.
Matt is the boy in the black suit which he wears everyday. Not because of his mother’s death, but for his job at the local funeral home. He needs the money because his dad can’t handle the bills (or anything, really) on his own. Then Matt meets Lovey, who is tough in the way Matt wishes he could be. This maybe why he’s drawn to her, and definitely why he can’t seem to shake her. Because there’s nothing more hopeful than finding a person who understands your loneliness – and who can maybe even help take it away.
