Book Review: Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson

20821284 (1)I had grand grand plans for my review of Brown Girl Dreaming, by Jacqueline Woodson – a book I found practically flawless. But as I’m writing this it is late Thursday night. I have to wake up at six to travel to Boston for a bachelorette party. I still haven’t packed and I have a submission for writing workshop to turn in before I get to go to sleep.

So I will just leave you with these words from me: READ THE BOOK.

And these words from the book that just made me melt: “I believe in one day and someday and this perfect moment called Now.”

And if you still aren’t convinced: this book review from the New York Times.

If you read the book please stop by and let me know what you think. And if you’ve already read it, then please leave a comment. I’m itching for people to talk about it with. Thanks for understanding about the brevity. Now back to writing!
