Brown Girl Dreaming is a wonderful collection of poems which tell the moving, beautiful and sometimes tragic stories of Jacqueline Woodson's childhood. The poems in this book display the innocence of the children growing up in Jim Crowe USA. They include the pain of losing those you love, the strength sisterhood gives you and the power of literature, all through the experiences of a child. This is a beautiful book of poetry that touches the human soul and speaks to our best and worst memories. Some of it you will be able to relate to, some of it you won't, but nonetheless, this book takes you on a journey unlike any you've ever been on before. 4/5 stars
