The Poet X
Xiomara is a budding poet, but her Dominican mother wants her to become the nun she couldn’t be.
This compelling book uses slam poetry to delve deep. It's all about standing up for yourself and not making your outer face be your only face. X is known for standing up and fighting with her fists. However words show what she is truly like.
Reading this book is like taking a breath of air. A beautiful rollercoaster ride.
