Teen Review: Booked by Kwame Alexander


Thank you Faith, for this review of Booked, by Kwame Alexander!

"'Booked' by Kwame Alexander was incredible. It is a great way of reading poetry if you have trouble reading poetry. This is a very quick read because you really want to know what happens. Alexander does an amazing job on this book and he made it very hard to put down. I absolutely recommend this book for people who hate reading poetry."

A library is a place for fun

But not a place to run

A library is a place to read

But not a place for a dog to feed

A library is quiet

And has no riots

A library is my second home

With books, one is never alone

Books are for adventures

Not to hold your dentures

Librarians may tell you to be quiet

They say that to everyone, they are not biased

Don't make noise eating an orange

Or you will end up paying someone's mortgage
