Book Spotlight!

Today’s Book Spotlight! is on a book of poems call Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty by Christine Heppermann

poisoned_apples_heppermann This collection of 50 poems blend fantasy with reality.  Christine takes equally from fairy tails and everyday life to fill the book with haunting poems about unseen side of beauty and perfection.  The Ugly Stepsister talks about how it feels to be the one left behind, the formerly Ugly Duckling wonders if being beautiful is really an improvement, and Little Miss Muffet’s diet plan is scary but all to real in today’s world. This book is short but not sweet, disturbing but fascinating.  This is a great read regardless of if you are a poetry fan or not.  Highly recommend for high school age teens.  To request this or anything else in our collection click here.
