“That‘s one thing these ladies know how to do. Be soft and strong at the same time. Like my moms.”
Loving this book. Why did it take me so long to read it?

I read this when it first came out — 15 years ago! — and I‘m ready for a reread before the companion novel hits my shelves.

Another beautiful story from Nikki Grimes! This one features a class of high school students, each dealing with their own stuff, who come together on Fridays to share their stories through poetry. A quiet beauty of a book!

I enjoyed this. Multiple high school students of different ethnicities and backgrounds come together in English class during "open mic" time where they share their poetry. They discover they have more in common than they think and that people are more than what you see on the surface.
⭐️⭐️⭐️

"That's some strong stuff Raoul be writin'. He was workin' it. Frankly, I didn't know Raoul had it in him. Matter of fact, I didn't know he knew that much English!" The voice cast is on point so far!
