2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 

In poems of varying length the author describes growing up with 3 siblings in a loving family relationship that varied between New York And South Caroline. While civil rights issues were part of her experience this is a coming of age story of any child who has loving and involved grandparents, some learning difficulties, a dream 9to be a writer), family expectations (especially about religion) and a strong sense of the natural world. A wonderful read. Ten to Fourteen.
