The voices in this collection have so much to question, so much to grieve. They have so much to celebrate, so much to rage against. They’re ready to speak up and begin the conversation, with you and with the world. More than thirty uncensored poems sensitively capture the moods and essence of adolescence. Here, painted in the words of teenage girls, is a portrait of dreams and desires, a record of hope, disillusionment, anger, joy, sadness, and most of all, strength.

    " I'm fascinated by teenagers, they always felt so foreign to me, even when I was one. Even though our society tries to deny the realities of kids' lives, these youth document the struggles they go through and also show how resilient they are as individuals. "
