National Book Award WinnerJacqueline Woodson, one of today's finest writers, tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a childs soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodsons eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become.Praise for Jacqueline Woodson:Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story . . . but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery.The New York Times Book Review

    Because you’re colored, my grandfather says.

    And just as good and bright and beautiful and free

    as anybody.

    And nobody colored in the South is stopping,

    my grandfather says,

    until everybody knows what’s true.

    , my grandmother says.

    Best not to ask for more than that.

    Hmph, my grandfather says. And goes back

    to working the land, pulling from it all we need

    and more than that.

    And when we are called by our names

    my grandmother

    makes them all one


    but my grandfather

    takes his sweet time, saying each

    as if he has all day long

    or a whole lifetime.
