How I Discovered Poetry written by Marilyn Nelson, illustrated by Hadley Hooper

Unrhymed sonnets tell the story of Nelson’s 1950s youth, spent mostly on air force bases and in predominantly white communities. A culminating scene—in which she must read aloud a poem containing racist language—leads to a realization of the power of words. Black-and-white photographs and spare, blue-tinted illustrations allow readers space to visualize Nelson’s detailed imagery. Grades 6 and up. —Horn Book Fanfare 2014
