Gayle Forman's three favorite reads of 2014

At Omnivoracious Gayle Forman tagged three favorite books she read this year, including:
Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

Woodson’s memoir in verse spans some revolutionary history—the Civil Rights movement, witnessed from Greenville, South Carolina—but equally compelling is the revolution within, when Woodson discovers the power of words and story. Maybe most telling, when I finished reading it, my 10-year-old picked it up, and devoured it.
Read about the other books on the list.
