#BookOfTheWEEK is The Poet X by @acevedowrites ! This book is beautifully refreshing. It reminded me of why I fell in love with writing. I relived the memories of getting my first journal, the escape I felt when I realized those words were mine and no one else’s;The release. If you know a teen girl, buy her this book. It’s a YA fiction novel / a poetry book that focuses on a young Dominican girl coming into her own. If you enjoy poetry or writing, regardless of age, I believe you will love this book.
