I loved how the author shared the poems with the reader.  They aren't written in flowery conjectures filled with meaningless adjectives in order to confuse and frustrate the reader.  Each poem is expressed in layman's terms, easy to understand and digest.

I thought the author, Rachel Greer, did a lovely job of conveying the messages of each of the poems.  You can feel the backstreet slang emanating from the pages as you engross yourself in the word dialogue being shared.

The great thing about poetry that its truly up to the interpretation of the reader and these poems express a hard-edged truth about them that makes them truthful and gritty.  There are mild to moderate expletives in some of the exchanges, but they only add to the ambiance the author is trying to convey.

I would give Words Of Inspiration From Your Own Kind a four out of four stars.  I thought the message was well worth reading and think this would make an excellent addition to school curriculum's.

I received a product to review from the above company or their PR Agency. Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own - I was not influenced in any way.
