Finding Langston by Lesa Cline-Ransome
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this book with my 13 year old. (Can I just say I am so loving that she still lets me lie beside her and read with her!?!!) Anyway, we read it out loud and this book just touched me so much! It wasn't a long book, but it packed a punch. Not only did Langston's mom die, but then he is moved away from the only home he's ever known in small town Alabama, to big city Chicago. He is lonely. He is bullied. He is in mourning. It just made my heart hurt for him! But then he finds some semblance of joy and belonging in the coolest place ever- the library. He also learns more about his dad and learns more about himself. Loved it!
