As Brave As You by Jason Reynolds
Genie, who spends a lot of time on Google, and his “too cool” big brother Ernie, are Brooklyn kids. When their parents drop them off at their grandparents rural Virginia home, so that they can go and work on their marriage in Jamaica, the brothers don’t know what to expect. They had no idea they would be picking peas, scooping poop, or living without a computer in the hot Virginia sun. Genie finds plenty of questions to write in his notebook and Ernie finds a cute girl to try and impress.
