When Wesley Boone writes a poem for his high school English class and reads it aloud, poetry-slam-style, he kicks off a revolution. Soon his classmates are clamoring to have weekly poetry sessions. One by one, eighteen students take on the risky challenge of self-revelation. Award-winning author Nikki Grimes captures the voices of eighteen teenagers through the poetry they share and the stories they tell, and exposes what lies beneath the skin, behind the eyes, beyond the masquerade.
From the Publisher:
After Wesley reads an intimate poem to his high school English class, other students envy this power of self-reflection and start writing their own poetry, causing deep secrets, fears, and feelings to be revealed and fatades to vanish. A Coretta Scott King Award Winner & ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Reprint.
Annotation:
While studying the Harlem Renaissance, a group of high school students is inspired to create and share their own poetry. This collection of 18 poems explores their thoughts, feelings, fears, and hopes. Winner of the 2003 Coretta Scott King Author Award.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[Grimes'] character sketches, seemingly only loosely connected, accumulate to powerful emotional effect. In the end, the students' poetry and the prose reveals a community of young adults full of promise, whose voices, although individual and distinct, ultimately meld together in blended but discernible harmonies." - Janice M. Del Negro March 2002
