I’ve always loved stories written in the form of poetry, and Jacqueline Woodson’s writing in Brown Girl Dreaming didn’t disappoint. The book is a series of autobiographical poems that tell the story of her family and her childhood as a black girl growing up in the 60s and 70s. I’ve lived a completely different life than Woodson, but I still saw so many of my own feelings in her words. There were times I forgot I was even reading a book of poems, and then she’d say something that hit me so hard I had to stop and cry. Even if you don’t read a lot of poetry, I would recommend this book.… (meer)

Augusta, antropóloga formada por uma prestigiada universidade, volta a sua casa para o funeral do pai. Coincidentemente, seu trabalho de pesquisa acadêmica centra-se em rituais funerários de várias culturas, uma tentativa de desvendar o mistério do luto e a dor quase infinita da perda. Numa viagem no metrô, ela reencontra Sylvia, uma velha amiga ― e um caldeirão de reminiscências passa a fervilhar em sua mente e aquecer seu coração. A história de Augusta começa em 1973, quando aos oito anos de idade ela se muda para o Brooklyn ― um enclave multicultural de Nova York com uma dinâmica comunidade afro-americana e vastas populações de imigrantes de todo o planeta. Lá, ela descobre o poder e o conforto da amizade feminina, enfrentando a transição da adolescência para a vida adulta. O encontro com a amiga de longa data põe em movimento a memória da década de 1970, transportando-a para um tempo e um lugar onde os laços de afeto representavam tudo para ela. Uma época em que a música pop tocada no rádio dava o tom da vida emocional, e os programas de tv ilustravam, com cores psicodélicas, a paisagem cultural de crianças e adolescentes. Para Augusta e suas três amigas ― Sylvia, Angela e Gigi ―, que compartilhavam confidências enquanto andavam pelas ruas do bairro, o Brooklyn era um lugar onde garotas bonitas, talentosas, alegres e brilhantes pareciam enxergar um futuro luminoso. Mas sob o verniz da esperança havia um outro Brooklyn, um lugar verdadeiramente perigoso em que homens mais velhos procuravam meninas em corredores escuros de prédios populares, fantasmas assombravam à noite e mães desapareciam de um dia para outro.… (meer)

“Something about the curve of our lips and the sway of our heads suggested more to strangers than we understood...”

“When you’re fifteen, pain skips over reason, aims right for marrow.”

I hate to be repetitive, loving everything I read, but I'm pretty circumspect about ordering books touted by people I respect. Ron Charles of The Washington Post sent me to [book:Another Brooklyn|27213163] rel="nofollow" target="_top">https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/another-brooklyn-by-jacquelin...
Heartfelt story of a young girl growing up without a mother but with close relationships with her brother and her teen friends in changing 1970's Brooklyn. It read like a memoir and I had to check again to be sure it was fiction. Descriptions made your heart ache for those young girls and their dreams. Lovely writing with echoes of sadness yet hopeful, too, for their futures.… (meer)
