The Realm of Possibility

21 Dec

The Realm of Possibility written by David Levithan is about the lives of different kids in high school who are all struggling with various aspects of adolescence. Two boys are in love with one another, the boy who wants to be strong for his anorexic girlfriend, the girl who doesn’t think she deserves love, the boy who is in love with the girl that’s in love with someone else, and the girl who everybody hates. The entire book is written in beautiful and poignant prose in the viewpoint of each character.

All teenagers will find themselves inside these characters and their stories, because we all struggle through adolescence having to face similar demons. If you like poetry that tells a long and personal story of many intertwining lives then this book is for you.

I will be posting an excerpt of one of the poems in my next blog.
