WHEN I WAS THE GREATEST
New York : Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2014
||Ali and his friends, brothers Noodles
and Needles, refuse to be defined by the stereotypes in
their Brooklyn neighborhood. Ali keeps busy by learning to
box, just as Noodles does reading comic books, and Needles
gets his name not from any type of injection but from the
knitting needles he carries to help control the symptoms
of Tourette’s Syndrome. Despite their good intentions,
what will happen when the three find themselves in a
dangerous situation at an exclusive party? (Booktalk by the Louisiana
Young Readers' Choice Committee)
