Jacqueline Woodson's memoir in verse? This is a beautiful and eloquent book about Woodson's childhood and the people and places that shaped it.
Though her early childhood is spent in Ohio, Woodson's soul is already filled with the stories and people of South Carolina. Even after the family moves to New York. Greenville, South Carolina, is an anchor.
This book is an exploration of place, people, and what it means to become yourself. I absolutely loved it, and you will, too!
