The Boy in The Black Suit – Jason Reynolds

The Boy in The Black Suit is an understated coming-of-age story about a teenaged boy coming to terms with his mother’s death whilst trying to make his way in the world. The sense of community throughout was low-key yet powerful and whilst the book avoids preachy tones, there’s plenty to take away from it.

I found the story believable and heartwarming and enjoyed the light humour and perspective.

Genre: YA fiction
