From the Publisher:
Through letters to his little sister, who is in a different foster home, Lonnie, also known as "Locomotion," keeps a record of their lives while they are apart, describing his own foster family, including his foster brother who returns home after losing a leg in the Iraq War.
Annotation:
Sequel to the National Book Award finalist LOCOMOTION, the intense story of Lonnie continues through letters to his sister Lili, who is in a different foster home. The theme of peace pervades the book, as Lonnie describes his good experiences in his foster family, as well as meditations on peace as his concern for a foster brother in the army grows. Full of tenderness, growth, and the challenges and joys of his new family, Lonnie's thoughtful writing is compelling and revealing.
Author Bio
Jacqueline Woodson
Though she started her working life at the tender age of two as an Ebony magazine model for Alaga syrup, Jacqueline Woodson's first love was always writing. Growing up in North Carolina and Brooklyn, Woodson worked as a drama therapist for teens in need, before taking up writing full-time. She's the author of over 20 books for children of all ages, from picture books to young adult titles, including SHOW WAY and FEATHERS.
