Summary:

Acclaimed author Jacqueline Woodson recounts her younger years in verse. A vivid account of an African American girl growing up in the 1960s and 1970s.

Why I loved it:

You may notice from the cover that this book has won all the awards. There’s a reason for that. Jacqueline’s story is powerful and moving. Through her stories she gently imparts wisdom. Also, the verse itself is brilliant and beautiful.
