Read full description of the books:



I sat down and read this short (44 pages) book of poetry in about a half hour--not the ideal way to read poetry, I realize, but this is clearly intended for a younger audience--an audience who perhaps hasn't had much exposure to other poets or poems. If I was teaching middle or high school, I would absolutely use this, but none of the poems in this collection are appropriate for university classes.

Johnson's bittersweet poems tell her stories of growing up in Shorter, Alabama and moving north. The poems, while brief, do convey clearly the love she has for her grandmama and the stress of moving to Ohio--she writes in "Nineties" that she "Had to leave the South / to hear somebody call me a nigger" (42). Other poems detail her father's PTSD from being in Vietnam, her grandmother's desire to have her learn piano (to "get a little culture"), and life in rural AL. A great primer for young kids, these poems are accessible, readable, and can relate to the struggles many still inevitably face today.
