Girl Coming In For a Landing

Girl Coming In For a Landing
A Novel in Poems
April Halprin Wayland
Juvenile Nonfiction - Poetry - Humorous | Knopf Books for Young Readers | Hardcover | August 2002 | $ 14.95 | 0-375-80158-8

About this book

Funny, poignant, and completely real–a novel of poems that follows a year in the life of a teenage girl.

You walk into class–
my head clears.

No kidding.
You are my aspirin.

One girl. One school year. All poems. From friends to first dates, school dances to family fights, this inspiring collection captures the emotional highs and lows of teen life with refreshing honesty and humor. With an authentic voice full of wit and insight, Girl Coming In for a Landing is just like high school: impossible to walk away from unchanged.

"Dazzling...zings right to the heart. I can't imagine a warmer companion through adolescence."
-Sid Fleischman

"Honest, heartfelt, poignant."
-Sonya Sones

"An undivided pleasure to read."
-Michael Cart

I am going to see if my library has this book.

My library does. Yay! I have a dd who isn't a huge reader. Something like this may interest her.
