Peace, Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson

The stunning companion to the National Book Award finalist—from a three-time Newbery Honor winning author

Twelve-year-old Lonnie is finally feeling at home with his foster family. But because he’s living apart from his little sister, Lili, he decides it’s his job to be the “rememberer”—and write down everything that happens while they’re growing up. Lonnie’s musings are bittersweet; he’s happy that he and Lili have new families, but though his new family brings him joy, it also brings new worries. With a foster brother in the army, concepts like Peace have new meaning for Lonnie.Told through letters from Lonnie to Lili, this thought-provoking companion to Jacqueline Woodson’s National Book Award finalist Locomotion tackles important issues in captivating, lyrical language. Lonnie’s reflections on family, loss, love and peace will strike a note with readers of all ages.

*Wonderful storyline in journal/letter writing form written by young Lonnie Collins Motion to his sister. *Gives readers insight into a young heart and a mind for the beauty of poetry. *Inspires readers to follow their passion for poetry. *Heart-touching story with a protagonist you will, hopefully, relate to. *Emotionally-charged. *Easy-to-read, you will probably be able to read it in one or two days.
