Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson

The novel is a poignant exploration of friendship, memory, and loss, set against the backdrop of 1970s Brooklyn. It follows the coming-of-age story of August, an African American girl who, along with her friends Sylvia, Angela, and Gigi, navigates the complexities of adolescence, the harsh realities of their neighborhood, and the unyielding bonds of friendship. As August looks back on her youth from her adult years, the narrative weaves a tapestry of her past experiences, capturing the joy, vulnerability, and resilience of young black girls growing up in a world that often fails to protect them.
