Not for the faint of heart

Her work is a reminder that poetry’s an art.
Her poems aren’t fluff and flowers–she’ll make you change that view.
If the gritty, dark, and powerful, is something your into.
Try some Ellen Hopkins–she’s the perfect place to start.

Wow. How was THAT for a sad attempt at poetry? Trust me, Ellen Hopkins is way better than little old me. She writes novels in verse about girls and drugs, alchohol, rape, abuse–definitely not for the faint of heart. Check them out (click on the covers to find the books in our catalog):
