Book of Ponderings is a book with many parts; its first section is a short story which describes the conflicting emotions of two teenagers who claim to be in love. It takes place in Sacramento, a town in Northern California where nothing much seems to happen but disillusioned youth growing old and bitter, waiting for some sweet escape. A second part within this section is a small group of poems and reflections on the issues this town has brought upon the life of a teen living there. The second section of the book is a group of poems and reflective passages about the city of Los Angeles. The third section is a large collection of miscellaneous poems, or poems with no central theme aside from life's beauties and casualties. Finally, the fourth and last section of this anthology is a collection of poems originally written for musical accompaniment. They tell the story of a doomed relationship between a girl and boy. Book of Ponderings is unafraid to ponder and question life in its beauty, and a rugged reality.
