    I am not a fan of young adult books, not sure why but I don’t connect. And popular books…sigh. I have left so many popular, well loved books unfinished. But it seems like a very good book. Adding it to my TBR list. Thank you for sharing your views.

      We are kindred spirits, Tarang. Half the time, I am unable to wrap my head around the popular ones.

      Do pick this book. Waiting to read your thoughts on it.

      I am sure you will love it, Sonia. Writing fiction in verse… the author delivered and how! Waiting to know your thoughts.

    Not a fan on YA fiction, but the premise of this book does sound interesting.

      Do check it out, Samarpita. It is really amusing that the book was marketed as a YA romance. It is anything but. One of the reasons it took me a while to pick it.

    I am not a big fan of YA but the backdrop of Dominican culture piques my interest. You have such an amazing talent in writing reviews…looking forward to your posts!!

      Thank you for your kind words, Ninu 🙂 It is not YA in the truest sense.

    I have not heard about this author and am not much into this genre but like your exhaustive review, well-done.

    Wow, this sounds like a fascinating read! I haven’t read any books that are narrated in the form of slam poetry – that itself is intriguing. Adding this one to my TBR. Thanks!

      It indeed is, Shinjini. One of the reasons I picked the book too. I would highly recommend the audiobook.

    Your descriptive review has tempted me to pick up this book. I will also be sharing your post with my Mom friends who have pre-teens and teens.

      Thank you Mayuri 🙂 It is one of those “required reading” books for teens. And works for adults too.

    This was one of my favorite reads from last year. The slam poetry style truly makes the book unique, of course, other than the plot.

      Exactly Shalini. Not many books are able to manage that.

    A story of a rebellious teen in the form of poetry! Quite a lot of revelations here! This seems like a powerful read.

    I am currently reading her book “clap when you land” and what a well written book it is. Thanks to your review, THE POET is gonna be my next. She is now one of my favorite female writers.
