Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Brown Girl Dreaming by award winning children's author Jacqueline Woodson is an autobiography told through verse and written for a children's/young adult audience. It is a story of a childhood. It is a story of a family. It is story of being African American in the heart of the Civil Rights movement. Written with restraint and well chosen constructs, it is a beautiful read for adults and young adults alike.
