Solo by Kwame Alexander

Poet Kwame Alexander has written a unique book in verse prose, straddling the worlds of poetry and prose (and text messages), as well as the countries of the United States and Ghana.

Teenager Blade Morrison is an emerging musician, the son of a rock star whose career took a dive when he drowned himself in alcohol after the death of Blade’s mother. When Blade makes a discovery about his heritage shortly after his father ruins his high school graduation, he takes a trip to Ghana, where he makes new friends from several generations.

There are many moving passages as the story investigates themes ranging from unconditional love to betrayal, from creativity to destruction, and from celebrity culture to living conditions in the developing world.

While the story is told by a 17-year-old, adults will enjoy the music recommendations that Blade receives from an older generation.
