Description

Teenage boys speak out—without the filter of adult sensibility—in a compelling collection of poetry and prose.

In a powerful collection of more than seventy uncensored poems and essays, more than fifty teenage boys from across the country explore their many-layered concerns: identity, love, envy, gratitude, sex, anger, competition, fear, hope. Here, unadorned and without the filter of adult sensibility, is the raw stuff of their lives, in their own words. Isn’t it time to listen?




About the Author

Betsy Franco has published more than forty books, including poetry and nonfiction titles for children. She inspires trust in the many different people she meets in the course of her work as a writer. As she explains, "My philosophy when researching and writing books has always been to let adults, young adults, and children spread for themselves as much as possible." With YOU HEAR ME, her purpose is to let teenage boys do so. And, as she says, "It's about time."
