Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson, 2017

In 1970s Brooklyn, four girls shared a place where they believed that they were amazingly beautiful, brilliantly talented, with a future that belonged to them. But beneath the hopeful promise there was another Brooklyn. Woodson heartbreakingly illuminates the formative period when a child meets adulthood -- when precious innocence meets the all-too-real perils of growing up.
