Qu significa crecer en dos lugares y no pertenecer completamente a ninguno? Jacqueline Woodson creci entre Carolina del Sur y Nueva York y siempre se sinti a medias en ambos. Estos poemas, conmovedores y poderosos, lo reflejan; as como reflejan la experiencia de ser una ni a afroamericana en las d cadas de 1960 y 1970, de una infancia vivida entre los residuos de las leyes de Jim Crow, de su aprendizaje constante sobre el movimiento de derechos civiles. Cada verso es una mirada al alma de alguien que, desde muy peque a, busca su lugar en el mundo.

Tal vez lo encontr en su propia voz al escribir. La elocuente poes a de Woodson es tambi n una celebraci n de la escritura pues, a pesar de que tuvo dificultades con la lectura cuando era ni a, su amor por las historias inspir las primeras chispas de la talentosa escritora que es hoy. Este libro es resultado de eso. Es el universo de una ni a morena que, contra todo y contra todos, se atrevi a so ar.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Jacqueline Woodson's National Book Award and Newbery Honor winner, now available in Spanish

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.
