The Poet X - WINNER OF THE CILIP CARNEGIE MEDAL 2019

Reviews

Considering the amount of poetry that has been written (and posted) during lock down, this book would definitely be one I would recommend for students in KS4. It has a strong female voice, cultural and relationship issues, a credible plot and all written in poetry.

I have given it 4 rather than 5 as I was a little disappointed with some parts of the ending but that's more my problem with endings and I suspect I am in the minority here.

Written in verse, it's an amazing book about a girl trying to find her voice. It's also about first love and a difficult home situation...
