Grandits offers a unique set of poetry told from the mind of a high school-aged girl named Jessie. The subjects of her poems cover a fairly typical range of topics pertaining to growing up, coping with an annoying little brother, and trying to survive high school. Grandits presents this material, however, in a very atypical way. These fine examples of concrete poetry often demands a physical interaction with its reader as the words twist and flip across the pages in order to visually convey the meaning of the individual poem. While Blue Lipstick does not offer the deepest poetry available for young adults, the collection signifies an attractive package for young adult materials. The layout, cover, and subject is likely to appeal to female readers aged 12 and up.
