Publisher Comments:

Eleven-year-old Lonnie lives with Miss Edna, who is always telling him to be quiet. But there's a lot going on in Lonnie's head. His English teacher, Ms Marcus, encourages him to write everything down, quickly, before his thoughts disappear. So Lonnie writes in poetry, because it's short, and using the many different styles of poem they are learning in class, Lonnie describes his life - memories of his mama and daddy; the fire that claimed their lives; living in the Home with Miss Edna; his little sister Lili and her new family; Ms Marcus and school; race and religion. In the end, Lonnie finds his way forward through the loving care of those who surround him.

Synopsis:

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.
