Reynolds, Jason. (2014) When I Was the Greatest. Hardback | Atheneum | ISBN-9781442459472 | $17.99 |   240 Pages

Friends + bad choices = deadly circumstances.  When Ali and his friends land an invite to an off-limits party that is so under the radar you can’t even hear the music from the street, it’s just too good to be true. An innocent misstep leads to total chaos and causes the dangers from the streets to almost destroy friendship and family. A fresh debut that captures the heart and soul of life for an urban teen who is trying to make the right choices

Marvin DeBose (Haverford Branch Manager) & Jason Reynolds (Author)

James Reynolds' visit to Haverford Library on the Free Library of Philadelphia “Teen Author Series” event was awesome in front of a crowd of 135 middle school students. This being my first time meeting Jason, I was very impressed with his demeanor and how he engaged with this young crowd that showed up for his book discussion.
Thanks go out to Aurora Sanchez the Teen Author Series Outreach Coordinator for coordinating this event.
