Book Talk: The Poet X

By May 17, 2021Uncategorized

This book is about a girl named Xiomara who comes from a Dominican family and never really feels like she is in a safe space. She feels uncomfortable in her own skin as well as with her family and friends. She looks for ways to cope by writing slam poetry and expressing all of her inner feelings on a page rather than saying it out loud. This novel shows the development of Xiomara as she continues to grow through poetry and become more bold in her writing. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading/ writing poetry and is looking for a reason to break out of their own bubble and figure out how to be comfortable with themselves and be able to fit in.
