Product description

Winner of the 2019 Carnegie Medal.

Xiomara doesn’t do words. Not that anyone can hear. When it comes to standing her ground in Harlem, she lets her fists and fierceness do the talking. But X has secrets. Like her weird feelings for a boy in her bio class. And the notebook of poems she hides under her bed. And a slam poetry club that’s going to pull those secrets into the spotlight. Because – although what X has to say is harsh, and the world won’t want to listen – she’s getting sick of staying silent.

  • A brave, bold and fierce novel that rings with conviction
  • A tale of finding your voice and speaking up for your beliefs
  • For fans of Orangeboy, The Hate U Give and Long Way Down
  • Elizabeth Acevedo is a champion slam poet from New York
