slow moving but nice story. ( )

I have not read the first book entitled Locomotion but wish I had before reading this one. I read this one first because it is on the 2011 NCCBA list. Very interesting style of writing in the form of letters. I liked the fact that finally there are good foster homes depicted. Rare thing in books. I was hurt by the war and Rodney's loss of a limb.

Narrated by Dion Graham. Twelve-year-old Lonnie and his younger sister Lili live in separate foster families since the death of their parents in a fire. Lonnie, who loves writing poetry, pens letters to his sister about all the things that are happening in his life and also to help her remember their parents and the way their family used to be. Meanwhile, his foster mother Ms Edna fears for her son, missing in Iraq. Dion Graham reads Lonnie's letters with brotherly warmth; you can feel the affection Lonnie has for his little sister, and the passion he holds for the things in life that bring him peace: writing, his friendship with Clyde, school, and scheduled visits with Lili.

Lonnie Collins Motion (aka Locomotion) writes letters to his sister while they are in different foster homes.
Coming-of-age story told through the perspective of a young black boy. This story deals with loss, e.g. Locomotion lost both of his parents in a house-fire, he was separated from his sister in foster care, his foster brother lost a leg in Iraq, a good friend moved away, etc. Eventually, Locomotion learns to believe in himself, and to realize his strength and courage.

This is the wonderful sequel to the story in verse, Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson. In this book, Lonnie is writing a series of letters to his sister Lili, whom he is separated from due to their parents death (they were both sent to different foster care homes). Lonnie (Locomotion) does not want his sister to forget him or their parents, and he is willing to wait years until they can be together again. In this novel, Lonnie is also dealing with the impact of Miss Edna's son Jenkins who is off fighting in a war, and returns home injured and struggling with PTSD.

This is another wonderfully sensitive book about hope, what it means to be a family and of course, finding peace. Peace, despite the difficult circumstances and lack of reaching your goals, means finding a way to be content and finding joy in the journey. This is such a wonderful sequel that I would encourage any young reader to add to their reading list. There are many themes and rich characters that students study and explore. I think this is a wonderful novel for children to read to explore the definition of family, the importance of expressing themselves, finding the strength and goodness in others. ( )
