The Poetry Girl
3 journalers for this copy...
Here's the blurb
"Twelve-year-old Natalia lives on a farm and loves the animals, the bush and the river. She hopes her safe life will never change, but worries about staying in the same class for another year, about being too tall and awkward, and about the fearsome quarrels between her parents. She uses poetry to escape from her troubles into the beautiful world of Xanadu and the delightful nonsense of the Mock Turtle. But over the next two years, Natalia discovered that the real world of disturbing bodily changes, sarcastic teachers, hospitals and accidents cannot be held at a distance by words.
THE POETRY GIRL is often funny and sometimes sad; it is a deeply moving and perceptive account of the stormy experience of adolescence."
