it was amazing

Jacqueline Woodson has written another incredible albeit short novel. This one opens in 2001 at the 16th birthday party of Melody but the timeline then goes back and forth and the viewpoint switches between Melody, her parents, and her grandparents. Themes of race, class, unexpected pregnancy, education, and loss are covered beautifully and honestly. Highly recommended.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
