"Garvey's father has always wanted Garvey to be athletic, but Garvey is interested in astronomy, science fiction, reading--anything but sports. Feeling like a failure, he comforts himself with food. Garvey is kind, funny, smart, a loyal friend, and he is also overweight, teased by bullies, and lonely. When his only friend encourages him to join the school chorus, Garvey's life changes. The chorus finds a new soloist in Garvey, and through chorus, Garvey finds a way to accept himself, and a way to finally reach his distant father--by speaking the language of music instead of the language of sports"--… (más)

This book of poems describes Garvey's uncomfortable relationship with his dad who wants him to be a sports jock despite the fact that he is chubby and not athletically inclined. It describes his relationships with his more accepting mom, his sister who teases him but is supportive and his friendships with boys who share and encourage him to accept himself as he is.

Beautiful story in poetry form. Nikki Grimes gets character development, plot and heart squeezed in where most people would need hundreds of pages. A wonderful story of discovery and friendship. ( )

Garvey's Choice is wonderfully written through poems. The author was able to capture the thought processes of young Garvey as he functioned in life with his family and friends. The story had me tearing up thinking about what young children might go through as they navigate school and family. It makes you think hard about how children might react to what their parents and peers communicate to them. I was happy to read that Garvey's choices ended up bringing him close to his father, which was once a struggle. ( )

Garveys dad wants him to be good at sports but that's just not Garvey. Garvey likes reading, astronomy and music. I love how the story shows Garvey growing to feel good in his own skin. It's a really good book for kids of all ages. ( )
