Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
Look at all those shiny medals on the cover!
Jacqueline Woodson tells a beautiful story of her childhood, stuck between two worlds in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
There was a big difference between South Carolina and Ohio and an unstable home life didn’t help. This novel in verse shares about Woodson’s journey to become a writer while living with turmoil all around her.
I listened to this audiobook. I might have been able to follow along a little better if I had been reading it and seeing how the words fit together but I still enjoyed this story immensely.
