    Spare and beautiful

    A beautifully written memoir. Written in verse in spare, but poetic, language. It could be worthy of a Newbery.

    loved it

    A new favourite, I love novels in verse but I think this is a must read for everyone. Really loved Jacqueline Woodson's story, but the telling of it is just spectacular

    Amazing. Highly recommended.

    My friend Carrie and I decided to read this for February for our unofficial book club, and I'm so glad we did. I mean yes, sure, it won amazing book awards [National Book Award for Young People's Literature (2014), Newbery Honor (2015), Sibert Honor (2015), Coretta Scott King Award for Author (2015)]. I didn't know what to expect, and when I heard it was a book of poetry, I just thought that was interesting. Wow, I loved this book, though. I loved the style, the wording. I could imagine her reading it out loud, and I even with uncomplicated descriptions I could see these things in my mind. Beautifully written. I know I'll read it again. So highly recommended.
