  1. Parents beware of mature content This book was assigned as required summer reading for my 9th grader who is 14 Thankfully I read it before him so we can discuss the content prior to him reading Themes include sneaking behind parents backs to engage in sexual activity, masturbation, physical abuse, smoking pot, underage drinking, turning your back on God and questioning the Bible and having a gay sibling Some of the pages were outright embarrassing for me to read because they sounded like porn I [...]

  2. I was loving this book until the very end The accuracy of portraying an abusive relationship in this story is very real.Considering this is written in prose, the story pacing is excellent.Then the end Without spoilers, just know abusive people don t change They just don t Victims hope their abusers will wake up and love and validate them And I m appalled by how many fictional books, this one, Twilight, Fifty Shades portray this as being real and possible.My good friend who has been a therapist f [...]

  3. So, first my critical thoughts and then my personal thoughts The formatting of this book is gorgeous The way the poems are structured on the page tell the story and convey the mood of a scene just as effectively as the words.The story is conveyed in a deftly succinct, but rich and moving way The minimal approach to storytelling really makes the character come alive in your mind I felt at home in Xio s head, comfortable and able to understand her heart through the language And pacing Acevedo util [...]

  4. A friend of mine had been telling me about this book for months and it just released so I had to get a copy for my daughter I m into the YA genre so I just had to read it for myself first What I loved most is the poetry form style in which Ms Acevedo tells the story of teen Xiomara Batista who is trying to navigate a complex life with New York City as the backdrop It s a very quick yet powerful read but I got so much out of her story in those 357 pages not every page is filled to the bottom so i [...]

  5. I was excited to read this book It got great reviews, won some awards, and the author is pretty renowned However, I was surprised to find that I didn t enjoy this book as much as I thought.What I liked Incorporating Spanish and Dominican culture into the book the poems The style of the book how it s written entirely as spoken word poems Many of the spoken word poems themselvesWhat I didn t like Everything works out for the protagonist X at the end, despite her physically and emotionally abusive [...]

  6. This is a novel in poetry format Xio, the main character, writes her thoughts in the form of poems that she writes into her journal every day and through these poems we experience some important moments in her teenage life.Good pointsThe poems really connected me as a reader to the thought processes of Xio I felt everything she felt the good, the bad and the ugly and really got a sense of her as a person.A great feminist message So much of the book deals with body shaming and guilt surrounding y [...]

  7. The Poet X is a story told entirely in verse This in itself is nothing new We have seen other writers express themselves in this way notably, Sarah Crossan The Poet X takes this concept and almost has writer Elizabeth Acevedo bleed her thoughts and emotions on the page.The story is about Xiamora It is about being a teenager It is about being of Dominican descent and what is expected of her It is about being a girl in a world that favours the male Mostly, it is about growing up with these life co [...]
