Poems about friendship (the good, the bad, and the downright mean) along with writing advice and general advice. This book is kind of all over the place. There are a few gems.

Not all the poems quite fit the theme, but there are some good performance pieces in here along with good writing prompts and tips.
This wasn't my favorite poetry book from this list but it has it would be useful in school when teaching poetry I imagine.

I really struggled with this one. I had to reread poems over and over for them to find some meaning.
