All of Me by Chris Baron
"I enjoy novels in verse and this one was one of the best because of the honest, not-holding-back way it portrayed bullying, body-shaming, learning to accept yourself and the body God gave you, as well as friendship, family drama, and first crushes..." Read more of this review »

Chris Baron, All of Me

“Inside my skin
is the beach, and the sand,
the redwoods and pond water,
the feel of a kiss, wet on my lips,
a mountain climbed,
and fog forever,
boogie boards,
and sleeping mats,
stories and stories,
and real
friends.

None of it
heavy water.
Just me moving forward,
finding m own story.

the kind that only comes
after something tough happens."
