    I don't think Jason Reynolds can write a bad book. ...

    I loved this book so, so much. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Edelweiss provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Sunny's story is very different than that of Ghost or Patina. First, his story is a series of diary entries--a diary he keeps to help control all the thoughts and ideas swirling around in his head. And Sunn...

    Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner! ...

    This is written in Dear Diary format. Sigh. I can't stand Dear Diary format; I find it overly self-aware to the point where it veers into uncomfortably self-conscious. Case in point:Dear Diary, The only thing weirder than me is my teacher creature. Aurelia. I know I said she mig...

    Fast-paces both in its use of white space as Sunny writes in his diary and in how Reynolds keeps us moving through Sunny?s world where his birthday is coming up- which also means that it?s the day his mother died. Sunny has to finally soon share with his coach and his father th...

    Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    My favorite book in the series thus far. As a teacher, I see so many possibilities with this book. The most obvious one is to teach stream of consciousness, but I would love to share this book with students and teachers to foster empathy and understanding of people with ADD or ADHD?t...

    Uniquely Jason Reynolds - boys with vulnerability who don't feel the need to run from it. The diary format more closely mirrors Reynolds' poetry books. But it also keeps the reader at more of a distance to the outside world than the first two books in the series. I wanted more Ghost an...

    This one might be my favorite ~ maybe because it's Mother's Day and it struck that chord. Love the universal message that we all are trying to find our niche, our place, our people. ...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    Sunny was good! It was different than the first two books in the series because Sunny is a very different narrator than Ghost and Patina. This book is told through Sunny's diary entries. He is kind of a weirdo! But in a good way. I liked learning more about his life at home and his rel...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Story told in a diary format. If you can get your hands on the audiobook, it is incredible! ...

    3.5 stars. I don't know how I feel about it . . . his voice is certainly distinctive, which was nice since Patina sounded so much like Ghost. But it's basically one long inner monologue, which was kind of exhausting, even though it was so short. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    Uniquely Jason Reynolds - boys with vulnerability who don't feel the need to run from it. The diary format more closely mirrors Reynolds' poetry books. But it also keeps the reader at more of a distance to the outside world than the first two books in the series. I wanted more Ghost an...

    This one might be my favorite ~ maybe because it's Mother's Day and it struck that chord. Love the universal message that we all are trying to find our niche, our place, our people. ...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner! ...

    This is written in Dear Diary format. Sigh. I can't stand Dear Diary format; I find it overly self-aware to the point where it veers into uncomfortably self-conscious. Case in point:Dear Diary, The only thing weirder than me is my teacher creature. Aurelia. I know I said she mig...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    Sunny was good! It was different than the first two books in the series because Sunny is a very different narrator than Ghost and Patina. This book is told through Sunny's diary entries. He is kind of a weirdo! But in a good way. I liked learning more about his life at home and his rel...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Story told in a diary format. If you can get your hands on the audiobook, it is incredible! ...

    3.5 stars. I don't know how I feel about it . . . his voice is certainly distinctive, which was nice since Patina sounded so much like Ghost. But it's basically one long inner monologue, which was kind of exhausting, even though it was so short. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    Sunny is an amazing novel about a boy Sunny. Sunny isn't like other kids. On the outside he is quite and calm, but on the inside he is buzzing. Sunny was traumatized and misses his mother he never knew, who died in childbirth. His father is strict on the matter and doesn't like to talk...

    Thanks to Edelweiss Plus for an advanced copy of this book! Jason Reynolds is a master storyteller! Each book I read brings me to like him more. I adore this Track series. Sunny is told by diary entries so it's a bit different than the first two. I will never tire of reading Jason's...

    I listened to the audio book narrated by Guy Lockard* This book was FANTASTIC. It is the 3rd book in the Track series and it follows 12-year-old Sunny Lancaster, the #1 middle distance runner of the Defenders. Sunny does one thing on the team, he runs and he wins, he runs and he win...

    Another hit in the track series. I love this series and the audiobooks are just great. Sunny's kind of a weirdo. He's the master of the mile on his track team and always wins his races, but he doesn't really enjoy it. He runs for his mom who died when he was born. She ran and his dad h...

    Edelweiss provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Sunny's story is very different than that of Ghost or Patina. First, his story is a series of diary entries--a diary he keeps to help control all the thoughts and ideas swirling around in his head. And Sunn...

    Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner! ...

    This is written in Dear Diary format. Sigh. I can't stand Dear Diary format; I find it overly self-aware to the point where it veers into uncomfortably self-conscious. Case in point:Dear Diary, The only thing weirder than me is my teacher creature. Aurelia. I know I said she mig...

    Fast-paces both in its use of white space as Sunny writes in his diary and in how Reynolds keeps us moving through Sunny?s world where his birthday is coming up- which also means that it?s the day his mother died. Sunny has to finally soon share with his coach and his father th...

    Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really...

    This is the 6th book by Jason Reynolds that I've read. You pretty much have to read him to be "part of the conversation" of children's literature, but I have been one of those people who doesn't Get It. I think Sunny easily has the best writing of any Jason Reynolds book I've read. I t...

    My favorite book in the series thus far. As a teacher, I see so many possibilities with this book. The most obvious one is to teach stream of consciousness, but I would love to share this book with students and teachers to foster empathy and understanding of people with ADD or ADHD?t...

    Uniquely Jason Reynolds - boys with vulnerability who don't feel the need to run from it. The diary format more closely mirrors Reynolds' poetry books. But it also keeps the reader at more of a distance to the outside world than the first two books in the series. I wanted more Ghost an...

    This one might be my favorite ~ maybe because it's Mother's Day and it struck that chord. Love the universal message that we all are trying to find our niche, our place, our people. ...

    Such an absolutely fantastic third book in one of my favorite series. I know I?m obsessed with Jason Reynolds, but Guy, the narrator absolutely killed it. This audiobook was life changingly great ...

    I loved Ghost and liked Patina and I think I may love Sunny even more than Ghost! This kid won my heart on page nine with a beautiful passage about crying and breathing and not crying and not breathing as he relates that his mother died giving birth to him. I stopped breathing for a lo...

    Reynolds' track series has so much heart and "Sunny" is touching. I cried. Written in diary style the reader gets up close and personal with main character Sunny. We see his odd way with words, clever word play, jumpy trains of thought, and how he talks to himself. Having a direct look...

    Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There?s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to ?make his mother proud....

    Okay... I liked Ghost and loved Patina, but Sunny is my absolute favorite of the Track series so far! Jason Reynolds dedicated this one "To the weirdos," and aptly so. Sunny's story is told through diary entries, which I found sincere and very relatable. The scattered inner monologue v...

    I loved the latest installment of Jason Reynolds's track series. His books explore many difficult issues effecting our kids. Sunny is a young man who excels at running long distances but, doesn't love it. It doesn't fit his personality but he's having a hard time telling his father tha...

    Sunny was good! It was different than the first two books in the series because Sunny is a very different narrator than Ghost and Patina. This book is told through Sunny's diary entries. He is kind of a weirdo! But in a good way. I liked learning more about his life at home and his rel...

    Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don?t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny?s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dan...

    I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to write such distinct and authentic voices for all his characters. It makes for such enjoyable reading. ...

    All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting! But Sunny is s...

    Sunny is definitely a great continuation in an already great series. I just need these books to stop ending on cliffhangers because it's too suspenseful for me! ...

    Story told in a diary format. If you can get your hands on the audiobook, it is incredible! ...

    3.5 stars. I don't know how I feel about it . . . his voice is certainly distinctive, which was nice since Patina sounded so much like Ghost. But it's basically one long inner monologue, which was kind of exhausting, even though it was so short. ...

    I love how Jason Reynolds is able to infuse the kids in this series with such big, quirky, ALIVE personalities and in such short books. Sunny wasn't my favorite of the crew, but I really liked being inside his head with its beats and dances and deep thoughts about his mom and dad and h...

    Sunny is an amazing novel about a boy Sunny. Sunny isn't like other kids. On the outside he is quite and calm, but on the inside he is buzzing. Sunny was traumatized and misses his mother he never knew, who died in childbirth. His father is strict on the matter and doesn't like to talk...
