"An extraordinary new novel about the influence of history on a contemporary family, from the New York Times-bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of Another Brooklyn and Brown Girl Dreaming. Two families from different social classes are joined together by an unexpected pregnancy and the child that it produces. Moving forward and backward in time, with the power of poetry and the emotional richness of a narrative ten times its length, Jacqueline Woodson's extraordinary new novel uncovers the role that history and community have played in the experiences, decisions, and relationships of these families, and in the life of this child. As the book opens in 2001, it is the evening of sixteen-year-old Melody's coming of age ceremony in her grandparents' Brooklyn brownstone. Watched lovingly by her relatives and friends, making her entrance to the soundtrack of Prince, she wears a special custom-made dress. But the event is not without poignancy. Sixteen years earlier, that very dress was measured and sewn for a different wearer: Melody's mother, for her own ceremony-- a celebration that ultimately never took place. Unfurling the history of Melody's parents and grandparents to show how they all arrived at this moment, Woodson considers not just their ambitions and successes but also the costs, the tolls they've paid for striving to overcome expectations and escape the pull of history. As it explores sexual desire and identity, ambition, gentrification, education, class and status, and the life-altering facts of parenthood, Red at the Bone most strikingly looks at the ways in which young people must so often make long-lasting decisions about their lives--even before they have begun to figure out who they are and what they want to be"--… (lisätietoja)

This book was amazing. It was slow at times, but with all great books it was a strong message through and through. The audiobook was excellent - nominated for an Audie award I discovered halfway through this listening. All the narrators are excellent including the authir. Some had stronger moments than others BUT an overall strong performance.

I am a sucker for any type of story that explores generational history from different perspectives and points of view. Jacqueline Woodson is quickly growing to be a favorite. ( )

At its heart, Red at the Bone is a book about family and relationships and all they entail: Love, anger, forgiveness, loss, longing, distance, intimacy, sacrifice, ambition, dreams, joy, sadness, fun, complexity, simplicity, race, and everything in between. Perhaps the central relationship is between Iris and her now-16-year-old daughter, Melody—who Iris gave birth to while a teenager. But in sections that jump back and forth between time periods, it also expands to cover the history of Iris’ parents, Melody’s father, his mother, and how their stories all intertwine as a result of Melody being born.

The jumping back and forth between different characters’ perspectives and time frames can be a bit off-putting at times. And there are moments where the story drags just a bit. But in the end, it all comes together in a way that gives an added sense of reality to the characters and their relationships with one another. Some of those relationships end with closure and peace, while some end in imported and sad, while others remain a work in progress as the book draws to a close. And at the end of it all, it leaves you feeling like you’ve seen a real family at work.

Beautiful, beautiful. So much life, love, and pain, evoked so lyrically, in so few pages. ( )

This story follows several generations of a Black family. Melody, the youngest member of the family, is coming of age at 16. She is angry at her mother Iris, who was a teenage mother and then left Melody with her loving father. Iris's parents tried to provide the best opportunities for Iris, but were outraged at her teenage pregnancy.

The book examines how attitudes about family, sex, and respectability change over the generations. It depicts love between family members, and how that love sometimes manifests in hurtful ways. It explores generational trauma: the grandmother was an infant in Tulsa and bears scars from the Tulsa Massacre, and that trauma manifests in different ways for her daughter and granddaughter.

The book jumps around between characters and time places a lot, usually in the first person. With a less-skilled author, this would have been really confusing, but Woodson gives each character such a unique voice that it's not hard to follow what's happening. Woodson also packs a lot into a very short book: the book examines race, family, trauma, sexuality, responsibility, and a lot of other topics. ( )

The book opens with a party: Melody is sixteen, getting ready in her grandparents' brownstone, for an event that her mother, pregnant at fifteen, had not had herself.

Relationships between Melody, her mother Iris, her father Aubrey, and her grandparents are illuminated in the course of the novel which moves back and forth in time and each of the characters have a turn telling the reader his or her story. The result is a poignant, powerful exploration of two Black families living in Brooklyn, their histories, and the intricacies of their relationships. The spare prose, deceptively simple, conveys so much that I will have a lot to chew on long after I put the book down. ( )
