Added to the Pile + 27

A big thanks to Heather at Sourcebooks for this ARC! Sorry for the small image. It was all I could find.

From Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, Elise Paschen and Dominique Raccah, creators of the now-classic New York Times bestsellers Poetry Speaks and Poetry Speaks to Children, comes this ambitious anthology of poems for middle graders in a dynamic book-plus-CD format, featuring many of the world's best-known poets reading their own work.

Poetry Speaks Who I Am is an energetic visceral collection of poems for that point in life that is at the same time angst-ridden and incredibly exciting. Filled with more than 100 remarkable selections from a wide variety of contemporary and classic poets, this journey of discovery at last brings the vital connection between poetry and the early teen years to full fruition.

I'm not the hugest poetry fan, but this actually looks quite interesting.

Yeah, I'm not too big of a poetry person either but this has the potential to be pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to reading it!
