Book Overview

When Wesley Boone writes a poem for his high school English class, some of his classmates clamor to read their poems aloud too. Soon they're having weekly poetry sessions and, one by one, the eighteen students are opening up and taking on the risky challenge of self-revelation. There's Lupe Alvarin, desperate to have a baby so she will feel loved. Raynard Patterson, hiding a secret behind his silence. Porscha Johnson, needing an outlet for her anger after her mother OD's. Through the poetry they share and narratives in which they reveal their most intimate thoughts about themselves and one another, their words and lives show what lies beneath the skin, behind the eyes, beyond the masquerade.

    When I was in middle school I would read this book over and over again. It taught me a lot at a young age. This novel shows that we are all family. And that our differences should be identifiers not barriers. The adage in the story is never judge a book by it's cover. I'm 16-year old African-American.

    It shows that no one is really different and we all similarities. The poems are really great!!! Take place during the Harlem renaissance and makes you visualize what wad happening during those times. :D
