Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of September 2019: Like many others, I am always in awe when I read Jacqueline Woodson. She’s the author of more than two dozen award-winning and bestselling books, and every time I open to the first page I fall into a trance. All the noise rushes away and what’s left is her melodic prose that waxes in and out of generations so seamlessly that, in the case of Red at the Bone, you’ve just been told the life story of a daughter, her parents, her grandparents, a teenage pregnancy, and a white dress that belonged to each of them. Her writing is tender, but strong, eloquently guiding the reader through the lineage of how hopes are born and sometimes dashed, how neighborhoods gentrify, how mistakes are made and lives are created. Red at the Bone is life-affirming and another incredible novel by Jacqueline Woodson. —Al Woodworth, Amazon Book Review

From School Library Journal

This quick novel opens with Melody's coming-of-age ceremony. She is 16, the same age her mother was when she gave birth to her. Woodson weaves together the perspectives of three generations, alternating among Melody, her parents, and her grandparents. VERDICT This is a story of adolescence told from multiple generational vantage points.—Elliot Riley, Deerfield Academy, MA
