Happy National Book Lover‘s Day!
“I do believe that books can change lives and give people this kind of language they wouldn‘t have had otherwise.” -Jacqueline Woodson
Another incredibly well done book by Woodson. A young Black girl and her family move from their home under the witness protection program after her father agrees to testify against his fellow police officers after a young unarmed Black child is killed. This book talks extensively about identity, change, race, serving as an officer and family! Really well done.
“...black wasn‘t a dangerous thing.” 😔
