Jacqueline Woodson has quite a way with words; 'Brown Girl Dreaming' is written uniquely and beautifully, giving insight into her life during the 60s and 70s.

While our own beliefs (on religion, for example) may differ widely, I still appreciated her take on life and thoughtful presentation of her experiences growing up.

I was surprised that 'Brown Girl Dreaming' was presented as a children's book, as it's a free-verse memoir. Still, an interesting, thought-provoking read.
