Reviews

* "Readers of Locomotion will welcome the chance to revisit Lonnie's world. . . . While his confusion, pain, and loss are at times palpable, so too are the moments of comfort, love, and sheer joy. . . . The small details of his days drop readers into his Brooklyn neighborhood, surrounded by characters who seem to walk right off the page. Moving, thought-provoking, and brilliantly executed, this is the rare sequel that lives up to the promise of its predecessor."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"A moving companion to the National Book Award Finalist Locomotion. . . . The spare, beautiful prose--both the dialogue and the fast first-person narrative--is as lyrical as the first book. The simple words are packed with longing and are eloquent about the little things people don't think real hard about, little things that reveal the big issues of family, community, displacement, war, and peace."
--Booklist

"Woodson creates a full-bodied character in kind, sensitive Lonnie. Readers will understand his quest for peace, and appreciate the hard work he does to find it."
--Publishers Weekly
