A poignant, humorous collection by acclaimed poet Gary Soto

The fleeting emotions of teenagers, as changeable as the weather, ring true in these emotionally resonant poems. Told from the point of view of both boys and girls, narrators of various ethnicities fall in love for the first time, pine over crushes, and brood over broken hearts. Tender, lighthearted, and surprising, this collection will capture teens, tweens, and anyone who remembers what it’s like to be a young person in love.

Industry Reviews

-Young teens will enjoy the -love sick- puns and the metaphors, lyrical and sad, that show that there is poetry in the way that they speak.---Booklist - . . . the free-verse poems all somehow ring true: appropriately corny, rich with image, accessible and believable . . . the simple, open design encourages browsing, and readers flipping through are bound to find the right words when they need them.---Horn Book -Since many of the narrators are 13 or 14 years old, these short, accessible poems will appeal to middle schoolers, especially. A great addition to poetry collections.---School Library Journal "Young teens will enjoy the "love sick" puns and the metaphors, lyrical and sad, that show that there is poetry in the way that they speak."--Booklist " . . . the free-verse poems all somehow ring true: appropriately corny, rich with image, accessible and believable . . . the simple, open design encourages browsing, and readers flipping through are bound to find the right words when they need them."--Horn Book "Since many of the narrators are 13 or 14 years old, these short, accessible poems will appeal to middle schoolers, especially.
