When Lonnie Collins Motion was seven years old, his life changed forever. Now Lonnie is eleven and his life is about to change again. His teacher, Ms. Marcus, is showing him ways to put his jumbled feelings on paper. And suddenly, Lonnie has a whole new way to tell the world about his life, his friends, his little sister, Lili, and even his foster mom, Miss Edna, who started out crabby but isn't so bad after all. Award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson's lyrical voice captures Lonnie's thoughtful perspectives of the world and his determination to one day put a family together again.

    " I used this book as an interactive read aloud with my sixth grade literacy students. I loved it, they loved it. Worked so well with our character unit. Jacqueline Woodson does a great job covering sensitive topics like diversity, death, bullying, adoption, foster care...in a way students can understand and discuss. I look forward to reading the sequel. "

    " This book was quite interesting! Telling a story through a book of poetry..amazing! The story line was sad, but I love how easy it was to follow. I think students that are just beginning to read poetry should start with something like this because it is interesting and easy to follow. Most poetry is hard for a child to follow and they don't understand what is going on so they end up disliking poetry. I really enjoyed this one! "

    " Not sure how jaqueline woodson manages to put out so much heartbreaking material but it happened again. and it's a book of poems that somehow manages to tow the line just above schmaltzy and straight to the heart. "
