Celebrate National Poetry Month by reading a book about the power of poetry and having the courage to speak up. For Xiomara Batista, poetry is where she hides her unspoken self. Xiomara’s life is dictated by her religious upbringing, and she feels increasingly stifled as her body matures and she falls in love. An invitation to join a slam poetry club might be her breaking point, or perhaps, slam poetry will be the catalyst that sets her free. Winner of the 2018 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and available with no waiting via Hoopla.
