Summaries and Reviews
Summary
While studying the Harlem Renaissance, students at a Bronx high school read aloud poems they've written, revealing their innermost thoughts and fears to their formerly clueless classmates.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A Coretta Scott King Award winner!

Using the structure of a poetry slam, Nikki Grimes' award-winning novel is a powerful exploration of self, an homage to spoken-word poetry, and an intriguing look into the life of eighteen urban teens. This anniversary edition--celebrating ten years of this wonderfully evocative work--will feature discussion questions, testimonials from teachers, and an all new introduction from the author.
 
"All of the [students], black, Latino, white, male, and female, talk about the unease and alienation endemic to their ages, and they do it in fresh and appealing voices.  Rich and complex."
—Kirkus Reviews
 
"As always, Grimes gives young people exactly what they're looking for—real characters who show them they are not alone."
—School Library Journal
 
"Readers will enjoy the lively, smart voices that talk bravely, about real issues and secret fears.  A fantastic choice."
—Booklist
