To work with and write poetry with young people is to be inspired every day. Kids are wise beyond their years and it would be in the best interest of adults to listen to them more often. This is especially true of the young voices of Albuquerque. In this book you will read poems that deftly and poetically take on tough issues. Poems range from creating awareness about bullying, celebrating cultural identity, debunking stereotypes, body image mindfulness and radical self-love, hanging out with their families, and what it is like being a kid.
