It deserves not only their attention, but equally importantly that of their parents and teachers, too. - An Amazon reader Poems with Attitude' is bursting with the raw emotion and hormone-fuelled experimentation of youth... It is rare and welcome to find a collection that speaks so directly to teenagers. - The Guardian; If you thought poetry wasn't for you, because it has nothing to do with your life, try reading this collection! - Young Writer Buy this collection and it will be read.
