Brown Girl Dreaming
The highlight of my weekend was powering through Jacqueline Woodson's Brown Girl Dreaming. I was excited to learn about its award status this morning. There are plenty of reviews and accolades online to further your interest, but I will say that the way poetry and the novel work together is a beautiful way to represent the experience of childhood. I loved every second I was reading this beautiful work.
