"Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Ever since her body grew into curves, Xiomara Batista has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking. She pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers--especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about. Mami is determined to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, and Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself. When she is invited to join her school's slam poetry club, she can't stop thinking about performing her poems."--Dust jacket.

Summary / Annotation
Love Love Love submitted by lcaitday on July 7, 2018, 5:20pm I really fell in love with this book. The poetry is beautifully written. Acevedo was able to pack a lot of emotions in brief poems.
Please Read This Book submitted by DBJC on July 15, 2018, 11:18pm A novel in prose, this book is one of my favorites this year. Xiomara is a character with a beautiful gift, and Acevedo paints her with beautiful poetry. This book lies close to my heart because through Acevedo's words, I could feel Xiomara's frustrations and desires as though they were my own. Please read this beautiful book.
