Written as a free style poem, this book is heart wrenching and compelling. Vivid imagery effectively forces the reader to go through the same sorrows and joys that Billy Joe experiences. I could not put it down until I was finished.

Although this is classified as a children's book, both my mother and I enjoyed it very much. Not just for kids!
