Not a verse novel since most of these poems can stand alone. Even though the poems are connected, not all of them are in chronological order. Of course they are also autobiographical, which just makes it all the more interesting in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved Appelt's novel Underneath and I definitely wasn't disappointed with this collection of poems. Texans might like this book in particular since Appelt is a a Houston native.
