The Girl Once there was a girl, and although she never lied, she had no friends, even though she tried. All she found was music and books to keep her company and the tears that she cried. Hide them she tried 'cause she didn't want anyone to worry so she silenced her tears and the screams that no one could hear. The girl went on with her life. Although you see her now and nothing is wrong...or so it seems but deep down inside she still screams....

With this collection of poetry, not only has Liz DeJesus won me over even more with her writing but she¿s also reignited my interest and love of poetry. I¿d become pretty jaded with poetry because there was such a lack of originality from much of what I¿d read over the last couple of years. While Liz touches on subjects familiar to us, she does it with her unique voice. Although I enjoyed and could relate to this body of poems as a whole, my favorites were: 'Home', 'I Found Myself', 'Writers' (which succinctly describes those of us who put pen to paper) and 'The Girl' (I felt Liz was peeking into my life). Liz DeJesus proves yet again why she is one of our most talented young writers.
