Wow. I wasn't expected to be so moved by this short, poem-filled novel. Containing poems interspersed with short narrative chapters, we get surprising insight into all of the characters who write and perform their poems. It's a little idealistic, maybe, but I was inspired by the idea that poetry could bring a whole classroom full of different, biased, and damaged students together. A very powerful read.

Winner of the Coretta Scott King award. I recommend this book for middle, high school students and adults. The poems and the current theme will keep them interested.

This is an excellent book about a group of kids who use poetry to express their feelings while living in the inner city.
