Locomotion

Written by Jacqueline Woodson

Lonnie was only seven years old when his parents died in a fire and he and his sister, Lili, were put in different foster homes. His foster mother, Miss Edna, turns out to be nice enough, but he still dreams about being reunited with his sister. Lonnie tells his story in verse and reveals his unique perspective on life and death.
