“Terry Crews has many, many talents, and this story is yet another example of his great skill. Inspired by his life in Flint, MI, Terry’s Crew is a testament to the power of not putting yourself in a box and surrounding yourself with people that cheer on the multi hyphenate skills that make you shine. With wonderful illustrations by Cory Thomas, this novel is a must read for all those kids who allow themselves to dream in a variety of big ways. Bravo!” -Pablo Cartaya, author of The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora
Young Terry Crews has a Big Dream Plan: He wants to become a MULTIHYPHENATE. That means he wants to be an artist. And a football player. And a musician. And maybe a NASA scientist, too! OK, maybe it’s ambitious, but his parents worked hard so he could go to a new school-Rock City Academy, a prestigious institution (read: rich kids go there) where he’s sure he can make his mark at the talent show. He plans an elaborate performance with his new friends, Rani, a passionate engineer, and Xander, a shy kid with a head like an encyclopedia.
Along the way, Terry’s plan is threatened by his grades, which slip below Mom-and-Dad-approved levels, as well as the schemes of the school’s football star, Rick, who won’t stop until Terry quits the talent show altogether. No matter what challenges he faces, though, Terry knows that he always has his crew to back him up.
