Patina by Jason Reynolds – first read of 2019

I loved Ghost, Reynolds’ first book in the Track series, and this book was even better than that. I loved that Reynolds wrote a female main character, one who is full of heart and also very complicated and real. On one hand she’s trying to fit in at her new school where everyone seems to be wealthy, then she’s also trying to be a good big sister and daughter, though they only see their mum on weekends and live with their aunt and uncle. On top of all that she runs track. She’s part of an elite track team and has been picked to be a member of the 4×800 relay which requires team work and being in sync with each other. And goodness was that race an exciting one!

What a read! What a writer!
