Solo by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess

Solo by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess

Blade is a guitar prodigy, this is no surprise considering his father is a world famous rock star. But Blade is finished with that life and wants nothing more to do with the Hollywood lifestyle, paparazzi and mostly, his father. After Blade’s father ruins his high school graduation and information about Blade’s past is revealed, Blade embarks on a journey to discover himself. Everything about this book is amazing, the writing, the story and the characters. I loved how every emotion that Blade felt was so genuine and pure  and he was not afraid to feel them. The writing is in a style that is not as much a description, as a sense of consciousness. I really love this aspect of the book as it allowed me to become fully immersed in the story and the characters. It left such a good feeling in me whenever I put it down and when I finished it I instantly started missing the characters. Every single topic, conversation and character is handled so elegantly in this book and it makes it a pleasure to read. Everything falls into place beautifully and surprisingly. The symbolism is great and gives lots of depth to different aspects of the story. I would highly recommend this book as a great coming of age story.
