brown girl dreaming

I loved the book Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson, a memoir in free verse. I wrote about it over on One Page to the Next.

I was recently in Washington DC where I left a copy of the book with the usual book plate

If you'd like to hear an interview of Jacqueline Woodson on NPR click HERE. Or, read an excerpt.

Get this book for all the middle grade and young adult readers you know. It is also a wonderful gift for all the lovers of free verse and poetry you know.
