Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

Brown Girl DreamingBrown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jacqueline Woodson's novel in verse about growing up in the different worlds of Ohio, South Carolina and New York. She has loving parents who do not stay together for too long. It is difficult to move between the culture of the North and South and Woodson's words from a child's view point are so poignant, always reminded by the times of civil rights and unrest, being Jehovah's witnesses, but always knowing they are loved deeply. School is where Woodson discovers her love of words, writing, and creating stories. The friendships and relationships Woodson describes are deep and profound. I did not want this book to end. I think this book will be enjoyed by children, teens and adults alike. There is such a deep sense of history, family, and education running through Jacqueline Woodson's childhood. Highly recommended.
