  • Some of the main conflicts in this story is when Jackie, her mom, and her siblings moved from Ohio to Greenville, SC, to where Jackie's mother is from to live with her grandparents. They moved there because of the disagreement her parents had about the south. Jackie's father doesn't like the south because of the climate and because of slavery, while her mother is from the south and wants to move back home.Another main conflict is when Jackie and her siblings had to move to New York because their mother and their aunt live in New York now. But Jackie still called Greenville home. Eventually, she got used to living up North.

  • COLORED ONLY
  • I would give this book an 7/10. The beginning of the book was really interesting to read, and so was the end. During the middle of the book, the story got kind of boring. Overall, I think that this is a good book to read, and I would recommend it to someone. 
  • Jacqueline Woodson was born on February 12, 1963 in Columbus, OH. She has won many awards for her books such as: The Coretta Scott King award, The 2020 Hans Christian Andersen Award, and The NAACP Image Award.
