Girl Coming in for a Landing
We learn & feel all over again what it is like to have that first crush, the first kiss, first triumphs, and set backs. We remember (or re-live) our times with our father, our mother, our sister, and our best friends.
Most of the poems run only one page long and the whole book can be devoured in one sitting or enjoyed a piece at a time. Leave it by your bed and read one or two a night and draw out the experience. You'll be glad you did.
I recommend this book primarily for girls ages 12 and up. Teens interested in writing (especially poetry) should also check it out and the author's helpful site on how a teen can get published.
This book wasn't long, but it was sweet. It made me feel like I was little again, every page had a picture on it. The reason that I read this book was becasue I picked April Halprin Wayland as my poet, I don't regret reading it.
Very confusing, it's about a girl in high school and regular high school issues like friends, crushes, and first dates. Normally, I like these types of books because I can relate to them, but in this case everything is written in poetry. I have found it very difficult to understand and sometimes have no clue what this girl means.
But of course, I'm not at all poetic and also do not enjoy reading poetry. So some people may enjoy this book.
Plus, the pictures and graphics are awesome!
If you love reading teen fiction about girls, then you'll probably like this book. It went by fast though. But it was still fun to read , even though you never know the name of the main character.
The novel is all in poems about the girl's life. School, boys, friendship, parents, her sister, her first kiss, drama club, etc. Some of the poems you need to reread and look into deeper to understand.
It wasn't the best books of poems I've read, but still, I don't regret reading it. The illustrations added a nice touch to the book.
I would still recommend this book to any preteen or teenage girl. It may parallel your own life or bring back memories of junior high or high school, which is always fun.
