The Poet X

Where to start! Well, in this vortex of a story, entitled-warrior, Xiomara, discovers her natural plead for poetry, guiding through thoughts, feelings and general life; this burning passion entices her into poetry club, a world of relief from judgemental scolds, as well as a universe of judgemental feedback! But, Xiomaras desire to write comes at a - well, many - cost. The book apprises us of Xiomaras battles, bliss and bereavement, all through her favourite form!

In my opinion, this story should appeal to secondary students vastly more than primary, and is a rather sophisticated and mature read - with some adult content, I would not recommend it to children under 11 - however, adults would also be enchanted by this tale!

Personally, I treasure this book to its exposure to real problems in a less harsh manner, appealing to all young adult in its own way. It was very addictive and I just couldn't put it down!
