This quick novel opens with Melody’s coming-of-age ceremony. She is 16, the same age her mother was when she gave birth to her. Woodson weaves together the perspectives of three generations, alternating among Melody, her parents, and her grandparents.
VERDICT This is a story of adolescence told from multiple generational vantage points.
