Out of stock
Writing Poetry: In the middle of the night/I turn on my light/then slowly peel/off layers of me/with the press of each key. This is the first of 105 poems that tell the story of a school year in the life of a thirteen-year-old girl. The narrator describes junior high, friends and family, a romantic interest, and her love of writing. "After words" offer advice to young poets. Mixed-media collage art complements the text.
