You Hear Me?
Poems and Writing by Teenage Boys
illustrator/photographer: Nina Nickles
In a powerful collection of more than seventy uncensored poems and essays, more than fifty teenage boys from across the country explore their many-layered concerns: identity, love, envy, gratitude, sex, anger, competition, fear, hope. Here, unadorned and without the filter of adult sensibility, is the raw stuff of their lives, in their own words. Isnít it time to listen?
"YOU HEAR ME is a fresh approach to hearing what today's youths have to say, and it's refreshing that the words come straight from them." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
