Falling in love or falling out of love, making the grade or missing the mark, many of the fictional high school students in this book are groping to get a handle on their lives. No wonder Wendy Tarloff insists she wants “a slow, easy ride to maturity,” and Nolan Davis asks a fun house mirror “Will I ever see a clear image of myself?”
"The 70 poems are fresh and crisp; they cut to the bone of adolescent life"
