The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
"I haven’t read too many verse novels, but I have to say it has quickly become one of my favorite formats to read. Being written in verse doesn’t hinder the narrative at all- if anything, it gives it an even stronger voice than if it had been written " Read more of this review »
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
"As someone who doesn’t usually enjoy poetry in any form, this book greatly surprised me. At times, I forgot it was a verse novel. All I knew is that I was engrossed in the story of a girl stuck in a life where she cannot be her own, and her only outl" Read more of this review »
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
"The Poet X is a beautiful and powerful coming-of-age story that captures the power of the written and spoken word. Elizabeth Acevedo does a great job with the characterizations of the characters, especially the main one, Xiomara. While she may act st" Read more of this review »
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
" A beautiful book written with gripping verse and tackling current issues, The Poet X is a must read in the year 2022. In a time where women’s bodies are viewed as something to be owned and controlled, Elizabeth Acevedo’s work is more important than " Read more of this review »

“Josie

Now, I have never understood all that
he’s-my-other-half
soul mate stuff
or when people sometimes talk about
having an empty pace inside
or that they’re missing pieces or something.
But then
he walked over
and fit himself
right into my puzzle.

Nicolette

It never occurred to me I couldn’t change
the way things are
whenever I wanted to.
I mean, I’ve always been the one calling the shots…

Avivia

He has a way of sliding out of trouble,
plays the innocent really well.
Grown-ups seem to think he’s such a good boy.
They are so wrong.
This boy gets any girl he wants.
Why does he want me? ”
Tanya Lee Stone, A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl

“What is courage? What is strength? Perhaps it is ready to fight for your nation even when your nation isn't ready to fight for you.”
Tanya Lee Stone, Courage Has No Color: The True Story of the Triple Nickles, America's First Black Paratroopers

“Maybe making something of yourself is as simple as having the gumption to do something bigger than you could have ever imagined, of walking, no marching straight into the center of fear all while playing a horn, blowing your worries into sweet, bold, triumphant music.”
Tanya Lee Stone, The Great War: Stories Inspired by Items from the First World War
