The Poet X

This book was very good: so emotional and unputdownable that I got through it in one sitting. Simply written in verse, it is an easy read but still very interesting. It explores the themes of discovering who you are are and who you want to be. It is a moving story about being independent. The raw emotion and the girl's hesitant honesty actually made me cry at various points throughout the book. The style of writing is refreshingly different to most other books. I would say this book is appropriate for ages of 11+. It is a good read for children and teenagers of this age because it teaches them that they should not be afraid to believe in what they want, even if it is different to what they have been taught. Overall, The Poet X is an excellent read which I would definitely recommend.
