Audience: 4th Grade - 7th Grade
Eleven-year-old Lonnie Collins Motion finds a way to express his feelings when his teacher asks his class to keep a poetry journal. The poems are about the things going on in his life, including his foster mom, his little sister, and the parents he lost in a terrible fire. Life in the inner city is not always easy, but through his writing Lonnie develops a new way of looking at things. The mostly free-form poetry beautifully conveys Lonnie's growth and development.
