Each poem is like a vignette that gives the reader a glimpse into the life of Lonnie - Locomotion. Some of the poems are sweet. Some evoke tears. And some, ask for contemplation. It’s the type of book that does not take time to read, and in part because of that, feels like it is meant to be revisited. Just as you would take time to revisit the memory of a friend, maybe. ( )

Using verse poetry introduced to him by a beloved teacher, Lonnie C. Motion tells of love, loss, and continuing on after his world is rocked by tragedy. Locomotion is urban poetry for youth at its best. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It was very well written and I liked that it was told from the perspective of a young boy. Lonnie is dealing with the loss of his family and adjusting to life in foster care. I didn't like the way the book ended, it seemed very abrupt and it left quite a few questions unanswered. Overall it was a very good, quick read. ( )

"This whole book’s a poem ’cause every time I try to / tell the whole story my mind goes Be quiet! / Only it’s not my mind’s voice, / it’s Miss Edna’s over and over and over / Be quiet! . . . So this whole book’s a poem because poetry’s short and / this whole book’s a poem ’cause Ms. Marcus says / write it down before it leaves your brain.”

Lonnie's voice writes and writes, chugging along to let the reader learn more about his foster mother, parents, little sister, and classmates. He offers a fascinating viewpoint into the world around him and shines as a character. I wanted to cover my ears and eyes and somehow guard myself against discovering more hardship, but Lonnie was too engaging. I loved the way that the structure could lend itself to teaching poetry at any level. The authenticity of the story, narrator, and observation shine through, creating bountiful opportunities for discussion. ( )

Losing someone that you love is very hard. Losing one parent is terrible. Losing both parents is something that can not be put in words. In this book author Jacqueline Woodson talks about a real issue that a lot of times is left uncovered and ignored, which is the condition of children is foster homes. Just because you give someone food and shelter , does not necessarily mean , you are providing them with they need . Humans are different than animals. You can provide animals with food and shelter and they will be fine. Humans have emotions and feelings that must be addressed . I believe that this will be a great read for social study class talking about both social injustice and also and how much students need t appreciate what they have. Over all i truly believe this is one great book , which i personally can relate to . ( )
