520    "Jacqueline Woodson, one of today's finest writers, tells 
       the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. 
       Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt
       halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares 
       what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 
       1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and 
       her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. 
       Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and 
       emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child's 
       soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson's
       eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice
       through writing stories, despite the fact that she 
       struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories 
       inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first 
       sparks of the gifted writer she was to become. Praise for 
       Jacqueline Woodson: Ms. Woodson writes with a sure 
       understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a 
       poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story. but
       a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-
       discovery"-The New York Times Book Review"--|cProvided by
