really liked it

This story is about seven struggling teenagers, Stephie, Jason, Keesha, Dontay, Carmen, Harris, and Katie, who find refuge at Keesha's House. Keesha's house is really Joe's. Joe knows what it is like to be shut out from the world with no place to go. His aunt welcomed him into her home and so he does the same for troubled teens. All these teens are facing hard problems and being together at Keesha's house helps them to survive.

I am not usually a fan of poem styled books, but I got a lot out of Keesha's house. I think it is because the message is so strong. We really do not know how bad someone is hurting on the inside. All the teens in this book struggled with some tough things that most teens do not deal with. I think book is important because it makes us aware of these problems and teaches us how to reach out to people.
