Keesha's House

Keesha’s House by Helen Frost (0-374-34064-1)
Remarkable! What reads at first as free verse is actually traditional poetry forms that make these poems true works of art. The poems follow seven teenagers through difficult times in their lives as they all find shelter at Keesha’s House, a home that is open to teen in time of crisis.
Recommended for teens who would be interested in teen crisis novels, because the poems are so easy to read. But also point this out to teens interested in writing. The skill here is so great that it is almost invisible.
