Asphalthelden ♦ Jason Reynolds | Rezension

Asphalthelden von Jason Reynolds besteht aus 10 Kurzgeschichten und bereits nach der zweiten war ich Feuer und Flamme für das Buch. Auf sehr leichte aber doch eindringliche Weise führte er mich an die Storys heran und oft überraschte auch ein gekonnter, und nicht zu erwartender Twist.



Meinung

Jason Reynolds hat einen geschickten Erzählstil. Ich war beeindruckt, wie er die Balance zwischen der Ernsthaftigkeit des Lebens mit einer Brise kindlichem Humor vermischt hat.
Asphalthelden ist das neueste Buch von Jason Reynolds und es kommt ergreifend, kraftvoll und mit ganz viel Humor und Ernsthaftigkeit um die Ecke.

Auf (nur) 192 Seiten verpackt Reynolds viele wichtige Themen, die Kinder heutzutage immer mehr beschäftigen. Da ist zum einen die Krebserkrankung der Eltern, welche die „Superkurzhaar-Gang“ zusammenbringt. Eine andere Geschichte befasst sich mit der Homophobie und wieder eine andere Geschichte erzählt vom schmerzhaften Verlust einer älteren Schwester. Aber auch Mobbing wird thematisiert und wie wichtig der Zusammenhalt unter den Kinder sein kann, wie stark sich der Rückhalt von Freunden auf ein Kind auswirkt.

Aus 10 verschiedenen Perspektiven erzählt Reynolds über die Aufregung, die Abenteuer, die Ängste und den Spaß des Heimwegs, nachdem die Schulglocke geläutet hat. Interessant ist hier, dass alle Geschichten für sich selbst stehen, aber doch über einen kleinen roten Faden miteinander verbunden sind, genauso wie „ein Schulbus, der vom Himmel fällt“.

Fazit

Mit Asphalthelden von Jason Reynolds betrachten die Leser*innen auf eine sehr charmante Art und Weise die Probleme, Ängste und Abenteuer von Kindern nach Schulschluss. Ich würde es sogar als Schullektüre aber der 7. oder 8. Klasse empfehlen, denn viele Themen gehören leide bereits in den Alltag unserer Kinder.

. Ghost is a children’s novel about how a young black boy deals with his traumatic childhood while making efforts to rise above it. He joins the track team and finds himself struggling to fit in because his past still haunts him. I found this book to be insightful and a necessary read for any child who’s struggling to adjust to a new social setting, especially school. I feel as if the message is empowering in how reminds a child that their past doesn’t have to define them

I don't remember what I heard about this in the Great American Read, but whatever it was, made me put it on my wish list, and indeed I thought both the writing and the narration were excellent.

This book would be good for Intermediate or older readers
This book goes through ten different children and their home experiences. Some filled with great hope and others full of hardship, this book shows the different life experiences that can happen within a couple blocks of each other.
I would not recommend this book for elementary aged students as it deal with difficult topics and has some language that would not be suitable for younger children. In some settings this book could be beneficial in widening perspective when talked about.… (mais)
