Although it's not written in verse, this book is beautifully poetic. There are passages in Woodson's prose which are so moving, so artful, they made me sigh like a Regency novel heroine. Delicately and purposefully, this book tells kids that many things they see in life are ok to live with. It's ok to have tragedy. It's ok to be scared and confused and conflicted about bad things that happen to you. It's ok to be friends with people different than you. It's ok to be different. It's ok to be kind, even when you don't completely understand. This book is a wonderful contribution to YA lit. ( )

The book is decent. I can see how it's an excellent middle grade book. As an adult reader it seemed a little....not interesteing. Still the plot and character development are well done. ( )

Woodson is one of the best (maybe the best) writers of fiction for young people. She's definitely one of my favorite authors. But I struggled to get into this book. Beautifully written, yes. Important topics and themes, yes. But it felt like a book written primarily to teach lessons, not tell a story.

Most of this book consists of a group of fifth graders sitting in a room talking. Narrator Haley is sitting in her room reflecting on the past year. Sometimes we are with her as a twelve-year-old looking back, and sometimes we are with her as an eleven-year-old living through the school year. She has recorded a lot of the dialogue in the ARTT (A Room To Talk) and is playing it back, but she also recounts a lot of dialogue that wasn't recorded. We also flashback sometimes to things that happened to her outside of school. All this moving around in time was confusing for me, especially because I wasn't able to read this in one sitting.

This book feels like a reaction to current events. In a lesser writer's hands it would be plain terrible. Woodson being Woodson crafts some brilliant sentences and images. She also puts a lot of wisdom into the mouths of fifth graders. I think this a book young people should read and discuss, but probably more out of duty than pleasure. I would recommend it to teachers and parents who are looking for a way to start a conversation around immigration, racism, bullying, and grief. The message of the book is right there in the title -- we must be safe harbors for each other in troubled times. ( )
