Raised in South Carolina and New York, Jacqueline Woodson always felt halfway home. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, her poems are accessible and emotionally charged glimpses into a child's soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson's poetry reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing, despite struggling with reading as a child. Book jacket.
