Twelve-year-old Lonnie is finally feeling at home with his foster family. But because he's living apart from his little sister, Lili, he decides it's his job to be the rememberer - and write down everything that happens while they're growing up.

Lonnie's reflections in his letters to Lili are bittersweet. He's happy that they both have good foster families, but while his new family brings him joy, it also brings new worries: With a foster brother in the army, concepts like peace have new meaning for Lonnie.

Told through letters from Lonnie to Lili, this thought-provoking companion to Jacqueline Woodson's National Book Award finalist Locomotion tackles important issues in captivating, lyrical language. Lonnie's reflections on family, loss, love, and peace will strike a note with listeners of all ages. Download and start listening now!

    " Sequel to "Locomotion". Not written as verse but as letters to his little sister who is still living with a different foster family. He wants to make sure she remembers all the important things that happened before their parents died as well as keep her informed about what's happening in his life. His foster brother in fighting in a war, but when he is wounded and returns home, Lonnie's life changes again. Lots of changes for Lonnie in this book but again wonderfully written. "

    " First of all, if this book does not win the newbery award or get a newbery honor, I will be SSSSOOOOO mad. It is such a great book and recommend to everyone. It has a very good story, it is also sad like the first book. But I love the way it is written and I love the story. I can't wait until Mrs. McCourt read it to us in class. Our class will love it. "
