Brown Girl Dreaming

Brown Girl Dreaming

Many readers who typically avoid novels in verse find that they LOVE the poetic form via audiobook. All you need to know about this one is that the story is fantastic, and it absolutely comes alive when read by the author herself. In this memoir in verse, Woodson tells the story of her childhood, moving with her family (or part of it) from South Carolina to New York City and back again, sharing her observations through a young girl's eyes with a writer's sensibility.
