Review: Brown Girl Dreaming

Brown Girl DreamingBrown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:
I haven’t read much poetry before– and I had no idea this was a collection of poetry when I opened it!

CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS:
Tear worthy.

PLOT:
This should be phrased “life story” really. It breaks your heart. Discrimination sucks, man.

STRUCTURE:
I don’t like
When
There’s
Unnecessary
Angsty
Forms of poetry
Like
This (I forgot the term for it)

THEMES:
Civil Injustice and Revolutions

QUOTES:

“I am born in Ohio but the stories of South Carolina already run like rivers through my veins.”

“At the fabric store, we are not Coloured or Negro. We are not thieves or shameful or something to be hidden away. At the fabric store, we’re just people.”

IMPACT:
It didn’t amaze me or anything, but I like to constantly be aware of history’s prejudice.
