When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds

When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds taught me a lot about the relationship between family members. When I Was the Greatest is about a guy named Ali and him telling the story of his best friends, Noodles and Needles. Ali and Noodles are best friends and they like to hang out and look out for Needles. Needles has turrets syndrome and so he is treated differently sometimes. Noodles always likes to always make sure that Needles is treated normally, but he does not treat Needles normally. This book is about Noodles coming to term with his brother having a syndrome.

This book was sorta slow but it was still good. It really shows you the perspective of how some families deal with their kid having a disability or syndrome. I would recommend this book to any high schooler who wants to see how a small disability or syndrome can have a big impact on life.
