This book tells the story of Jaqueline Woodson’s childhood in a poetic way. It’s a wonderful story, about her growing up, her problems, and her beautiful experience. She tells the story, of her own life in her perspective. Its about the journey of Jaqueline, and how she sometimes felt like she didn’t fit in the world, but she kept looking and soon found her place.
I would recommend this book to kids who like poetry . The vocabulary is easy enough to understand. But Jaqueline wrote her story poetically, so it can get confusing. This book is very inspiring, and it encourages kids to follow what their heart says and always keep believing your dreams.
