Brown Girl Dreaming

This book inspires me to become a better, more authentic writer, and a better person in general. It also inspired me to overcome my hang-ups with book reviews and just start writing them again; my need to share this with other people felt more important than any of my other lame concerns and over-thinks.  It is also my lead-out pick for the 2015 Newbery, so there.  Check out my book review of Brown Girl Dreaming over at Granitemedia.org.
