Falling Hard 100 Love Poems by Teenagers

Author(s): Betsy Franco


"The quality here is head and shoulders above most young writers' collections, and in fact it's well above many adult anthologies as well."
-- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
The poets are straight, gay, lesbian, bi, or transgender. They live next door or across an ocean; they are innocent or experienced; their lyric explorations range from new love to stale love, obsession to ennui, ecstasy to heartbreak, and every nuance in between. Whether the romantic escapades described are touching, comical, or tragic, whether the feelings expressed are tender and sweet or brutal and biting, readers will find the love these young poets openly share to be exquisitely, excruciatingly, endlessly fascinating. Here is a collection to turn to again and again, because life -- and love -- keep on changing.
