Overview

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.
