REQUIRED AUTHOR: JACQUELINE WOODSON
Locomotion and his little sister Lili are foster kids living in different homes. Locomotion writes Lili letters about life, saving them for her until she gets old enough to appreciate the wisdom he offers her. His letters chronicle a difficult year, from Lili's foster mom not letting him see Lili on her birthday, to his foster brother coming home from the war-front with a missing leg.

I felt like Locomotion was way more mature than any kid his age I've ever met. Though the things he wrote to his sister were very true, I just was not able to believe any of it because I don't see how someone so young could have those insights. I did really live the form, though. I felt like it was an effective way to illustrate the relationship between Lili and Locomotion. This book is appropriate for a younger YA audience.
