Solo by Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess

From award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander, with Mary Rand Hess, comes Solo, a YA novel written in poetic verse. Solo tells the story of seventeen-year old Blade Morrison, whose life is bombarded with scathing tabloid covers and a constant reminder that his father is struggling with just about every addiction under the sun--including a desperate desire to make a comeback. Haunted by memories of his mother and the ruin his father's washed-up legacy has brought to the family, Blade's only hope is in the forbidden love of his girlfriend. But when he discovers a deeply protected family secret--one that further threatens his relationship with his family and has him questioning his own identity--he's thrown into a tailspin. Blade sets out on a journey across the globe that will change everything he thought to be true.

Update: Congratulations to our lucky winner, Paula Y.!
