Keeping her brother, Benji, warm, fed, and away from their father is Louisa's only goal in life. When the state steps in and places them in separate foster homes, her world falls apart.
Louisa, in crisis, discovers slam poetry. The spoken word performances reveal people sharing pieces of themselves on stage for the world to hear. The transparency she sees frightens her but also holds the key to her future...if she's brave enough to give her story a voice.

Heartbreaking Yet Hopeful, Brilliantly Read
Heartbreaking, Real, Wrenching
I love the protagonist, but I also liked those who try to help her: Miss F., Margot, and Jess.
When her journals were returned to her.
Hope takes practice.

Poignant, Real Beautifully Narrated
Jessica's excellent narration, does great justice to the story of Louisa and Benji. Her voice conveys the crisis and the turmoil beautifully.
