Locomotion Book Review


I just finished reading Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson.  It’s about a boy named Lonnie Collins Motion and his life without his parents.

Lonnie Collins Motion used to live with his mother, father, and little sister, but that all changed when his parents died in a fire.  Now he’s living with his foster mom, Miss Edna, visiting his sister, Lili, and expressing himself through poems.

With the help of his teacher, Miss Marcus, Lonnie finds that living with Miss Edna isn’t that bad and that life will go on.

I really enjoyed this book because of the way it was written, entirely in poems.  Lonnie writes about everything, good or bad.  That really helps the reader understand Lonnie.

My favorite character in the book is Miss Marcus, because she’s always there for Lonnie.  She’s kind, helpful, and she understands Lonnie like almost no one else does.

Happy reading!
