About Jason Reynolds

Already 17 years old when he read his first novel cover to cover, few could have guessed Jason Reynolds would become a New York Times best-selling author. Proclaimed “the hardest-working man” by Publishers Weekly for publishing ten books since 2014, the highly prolific young adult author “hate[s] boring books.” Jason’s modern-experiential themes, urban authenticity and hip-hop inspirations are warming teens to reading and writing, appealing to their social-centric world. Jason inspires and waxes poetic to 45K+ Twitter followers, spinning verses, promoting art, sharing random inspirations, writing woes and #procrastinationjason ramblings. Anything, but what’s boring.
