Jacqueline Woodson's National Book Award and Newbery Honor winner is a powerful memoir that tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. A President Obama "O" Book Club pick Raised in South Carolina and New York; Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems; she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s; living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful; each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged; each line a glimpse into a child’s soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson’s eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories; despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her; creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become. Includes 7 additional poems; including "Brown Girl Dreaming." Praise for Jacqueline Woodson: "Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people; offering a poetic; eloquent narrative that is not simply a story . . . but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery.”—The New York Times Book Review
