Another Brooklyn - Jacqueline Woodson

Staff Pick

As her father’s funeral and a chance encounter cause a Brooklynite named August to look back on her youth, she reflects upon her relationship with best friends Sylvia, Angela, and Gigi. The playfulness and innocence of their childhood stand in stark contrast to the backdrop of emotion, anxiousness, and ever-present danger inherent in growing up girl in 1970s Brooklyn. Jacqueline Woodson uses her signature lyrical prose and deft storytelling to show how we sometimes live one story while remembering another. Contemplate your own memories, both real and perceived, while enjoying this truly original coming-of-age story and experiencing the music, family, friendships, tragedies, and triumphs of Another Brooklyn (Amistad, $22.99). Ages 14 and up.
