Jason Reynolds


USA flag (b.1983)

After earning a BA in English from The University of Maryland, College Park, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where you can often find him walking the four blocks from the train to his apartment talking to himself. Well, not really talking to himself, but just repeating character names and plot lines he thought of on the train, over and over again, because he's afraid he'll forget it all before he gets home.

Rebecca, Not Becky (2023)
Catherine Wigginton Greene and Christine Platt
"Platt and Wigginton Greene drop a big spoon into the stewpot of race, relationship, class, and age, and serve the reader one sip at a time. Some of it is sweet. Some, sour. Some of it is even a bit spicy. But all of it... yes all of it, is delicious (and might even be healthy). Masterfully done!"

Salt the Water (2023)
Candice Iloh
"There are many things Iloh accomplishes in Salt The Water, but the most impressive, and arguably the most important, is that this unflinching portrayal of the necessary irreverence of Black teenagers on a complicated quest for self-actualization is one of the best I've seen in a long time."

Sweet, Soft, Plenty Rhythm (2022)
Laura Warrell
"In an exceptional debut, Warrell turns love, or at least the love life of musician Circus Palmer, into the proverbial jazz club: dark and sexy, freeing and frightening, ecstatic and lonely.... A modern masterpiece."
