My Name Is Jason. Mine Too. : Two Jasons begin college as roommates and then move together to New York City, one to be a poet and one to be an artist. They persevere through hunger and misunderstandings of why they have chosen to dedicate their lives to their respective arts. The real strength of this title lies in the relationship between the two young men, who could have been torn apart by what they endure, but instead become close as brothers. It celebrates differences while showing how similar they really are. This is not a depressing collection of poems and art, nor does it depict their lives as rags-to-riches. Instead it is what it is - two guys fighting through the bad, enjoying their lives and their gifts, and not giving up when the world pushes back. This is something truly different and many teens, especially high school juniors and seniors who are starting to think about their next steps in life, will find a lot of comfort in Jason Reynolds's words and the seamless pairing with Jason Griffin's art.
