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. But because hes living apart from his little sister, Lili, he decides its his job to be the “rememberer”—and write down everything that happens while theyre growing up. 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.
