what i believe

Just picked up a book that will be published in October, it's called what i believe by Norma Fox Mazer and so far it's good. This is another book told through the first person voice in poems. The speaker is Victory Marnet who is adjusting to her whole life shifting when her father cannot get a job after being downsized. After almost two year without a job, the family is forced to sell their home and many of their belongings just to make ends meet. Victory is now forced to change schools and live in the city.

But her way of coping is through the poems she writes about her life. So far, so good. This book will be available for a student reviewer to read and write about this summer. Talk to me if this book sounds interesting to you!
