The stunning companion to the National Book Award finalist--from a three-time Newbery Honor winning author

Twelve-year-old Lonnie is finally feeling at home with his foster family.

Lonnies musings are bittersweet; hes happy that he and Lili have new families, but though 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 Woodsons National Book Award finalist Locomotion tackles important issues in captivating, lyrical language. Lonnies reflections on family, loss, love and peace will strike a note with readers of all ages.


Told through letters from 12-year-old Lonnie to his younger sister, this thought-provoking companion to "Locomotion" tackles important issues in captivating, lyrical language.
