This is an okay book written by Jacqueline Woodson. Lonnie Collins Motion, nicknamed Locomotion after a song, lost his parents in a fire when he was only 7-years-old. He and his younger sister Lili were put into foster care. Four years later the siblings are living with different families and Lili’s foster mother isn’t very fond of Lonnie, but she still allows him to visit. His teacher challenges him to keep a journal and she requires him to use different styles of poetry. This gives him an outlet to express his emotions.
