Brown Girl Dream is all about Jacqueline Woodson's life as an African American in the Northeast and South. Born in Columbus, Ohio in the 60s racism was a big part of her growing up. This racism was especially great in the south. Her and her siblings live with their grandmother in South Carolina as their mother explores New York and their father left. Her grandmother forces them to become Jehovah's Witnesses to be like her. Eventually their mom finds a home for them in New York, but they feel out of place in the big city because of their skin color and southern accents. It doesn't help having yet another sibling in their small NYC apartment. Every summer the Woodson's would return back to their home in South Carolina. By the end of the book Jacqueline has gained immense amounts of self confidence and self love as and adult.
This book was quite interesting. A good type of interesting. It explained the 60s from a different point of view. An young, southern black girl living in NYC. I have to give credit to Woodson for telling the whole, true story about her childhood. Every detail, every bump in the road she not only wrote but also explained. Explained what she felt during that time and how it affected her. It's not your average autobiography. This is a book I would totally recommend. The good thing about it is that it's a book made for all ages.
