Ain’t Burned All the Bright

Ain’t Burned All the Bright

"This is the coolest book I've read, possibly ever. “the illustrations for this book were rendered in paint markers, sharpies, spray paint, ball-point pen, pencil, gaffer tape, scotch tape, label stickers, felt-tip pen, packing tape, masking tape, and acrylic paint in moleskine notebooks.” That’s not an artist’s note, that’s from the copyright page. It's truly a marvel, meant to be held and looked at."

Prepare yourself for something unlike anything: A smash-up of art and text for teens that viscerally captures what it is to be Black. In America. Right Now. Written by #1 New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Jason Reynolds.

Jason Reynolds and his best bud, Jason Griffin had a mind-meld. And they decided to tackle it, in one fell swoop, in about ten sentences, and 300 pages of art, this piece, this contemplation-manifesto-fierce-vulnerable-gorgeous-terrifying-WhatIsWrongWithHumans-hope-filled-hopeful-searing-Eye-Poppingly-Illustrated-tender-heartbreaking-how-The-HECK-did-They-Come-UP-with-This project about oxygen. And all of the symbolism attached to that word, especially NOW.

And so for anyone who didn’t really know what it means to not be able to breathe, REALLY breathe, for generations, now you know. And those who already do, you’ll be nodding yep yep, that is exactly how it is.
