Book Shorts: Jumped In

Jumped InTitle: Jumped In

Author: Patrick Flores-Scott

Summary:  Set in South King County, WA, Sam is reluctantly teamed up with “gangster” Luis to create a performance poetry/rap for Ms Cassidy’s 10th grade English Class.  Filled with raw teen poetry, you can feel the rain in the book ( we don’t do snow, we love the H²O, baby!)

Gut Reaction: Give me more Patrick!  Don’t move to Michigan!

Why: Slick poetry, set in Seattle Area, for the student you sit next to in class but hardly know anything about, Latino characters and author!

Who would like this book:  Fans of Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick your Ass by Meg Medina, poetry rap fans, and fans of Matt de la Peña!
