Behind the Red Apple
What Every Teen Goes Through
Reader reviewed by Krysten Weller
Charlotte H. Ford has written an unique poetry book that captures the essence of growing up as a teen today. The book touches on subjects that every teen faces such as eating disorders, blended families, feeling "different," and many others. Ford manages to touch on almost every emotion a young person goes through while going through adolescence. Ford, a former educator, writes from a clued-in perespective as it is apparent that she has witnessed many of the conflicts she writes about with her former students. This is a wonderful edition to any classroom.
