u003cpu003eNew York Times bestselling authors Kwame Alexander and Mary Rand Hess (Solo) tell this lyrical story about hope, courage, and love that speaks to anyone who's struggled to find their voice. And the surprise ending shines a spotlight on the issues related to our current social divide, challenging perspectives and inspiring everyone to make their voice heard.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eWhen America is not so beautiful, or right, or just, it can be hard to know what to do. Best friends Walt and Noah decide to use their voices to grow more good in the world, but first they've got to find cool.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eWalt is convinced junior year is their year, and he has a plan to help them woo the girls of their dreams and become amazing athletes. Never mind that he and Noah failed to make the high school baseball team yet again, and Noah's love interest since third grade, Sam, has him firmly in the friend zone. Noah soon finds himself navigating the worlds of jazz, batting cages, the strange advice of Walt's Dairy Queen-employed cousin, as well as Walt's "Hug Life" mentality. Status quo seems inevitable until Noah stumbles on a stash of old love letters. Each page contains the words he's always wanted to say to Sam, and he begins secretly creating artwork using the lines that speak his heart. But when his private artwork becomes public, Noah has a decision to make: continue his life in the dugout and possibly lose the girl forever, or take a swing and finally speak out?u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eAt the same time, numerous American flags are being left around town. While some think it's a harmless prank and others see it as a form of peaceful protest, Noah can't shake the feeling something bigger is happening to his community. Especially after he witnesses events that hint divides and prejudices run deeper than he realized.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eAs the personal and social tensions increase around them, Noah and Walt must decide what is really true when it comes to love, friendship, sacrifice, and fate.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eSwing:u003c/pu003e u003culu003e u003cliu003eIs written by New York Times bestselling author and Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Honor Book Award-winner Kwame Alexanderu003c/liu003e u003cliu003eIs a young adult fiction novel told through Kwame's one-of-a-kind free-verse poetryu003c/liu003e u003cliu003eIs ripe with themes of hope, courage, and loveu003c/liu003e u003cliu003eMasterfully combines jazz, art, baseball, friendship, and love into what many are calling "Kwame's best book yet"u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eTackles some of the most painful social issues of today, including racial prejudiceu003c/liu003e u003c/ulu003e
