This picture book biography tells the story of Miss Lou's early years, when she was a young girl who loved poetry but felt caught between writing “lines of words like tight cornrows” or words that beat “in time with her heart.” Despite criticism from one teacher, Louise finds a way to weave the influence of the music, voices, and rhythms of her surroundings into her poems.

A vibrant, colorful, and immersive look at an important figure in Jamaica's cultural history, this is also a universal story of a child finding and trusting her own voice. End matter includes a glossary of Jamaican patois terms, a note about the author's “own voice” perspective, and a brief biography of Miss Lou and her connection to Canada, where she spent 20 years of her life. PreK- Grade 2. Hardcover.
