Product Details


“Reminiscent of now-classic works by Katherine Paterson, Natalie Babbitt and Lois Lowry, The Season of Styx Malone brings the darkness of fear and trauma into the bright sun of summer days.”
Shelf Awareness, starred review

“A summertime romp filled with trouble-making, camaraderie, and substance.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“Heartening and hopeful, a love letter to black male youth grasping the desires within them, absorbing the worlds around them, striving to be more otherwise than ordinary. Please share.”—Kirkus Review, starred review

“Spending time with Styx, Caleb, and Bobby Gene is an experience no reader will soon forget. ”—Horn Book, starred review

“Interweaving themes of risk taking and trust, betrayal and forgiveness, Magoon (How It Went Down) crafts a novel that is genuinely funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting—extraordinary, in fact.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
