The Poet X
By Elizabeth Acevedo
Narrated by: Elizabeth Acevedo
Length: 3 hours 30 minutes
The Poet X
“The Poet X is written and narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo. It is a novel made up of poems by a teenager, Xiomara Batista, growing up in Harlem. Acevedo's narration is wonderful and brings the story to life. Xiomara's dad is MIA even though he lives at home; her mother is extremely religious and pushes her faith onto her daughter; her twin brother is quiet and also working through his own feelings; she starts her first relationship with a guy; and all the time Xiomara is told what she can and cannot do, gets accosted by men, has to defend herself because no one else will, is questioning God and has no one to open up to. She releases her pent of feelings in a notebook. It isn't until her new English teacher introduces her to spoken poetry that she realizes that is what she is meant to be: a poet. This is a lovely story of a young, misunderstood girl, coming of age and showing the world that she is worth it. Great for adults who enjoyed Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson and extremely relevant literature for the #metoo movement.”Kelly, M. Judson Booksellers

“Medie’s use of multiple perspectives in telling this story of cousins Akorfa and Selasi is extraordinarily effective. We hear their stories from Akorfa’s perspective, then from Selasi’s, and finally from their combined perspectives after they have learned hidden details of each other’s life. Privileged and with a sense of entitlement, Akorfa grows up viewing the world very differently than much-less-privileged Selasi does. They grow from inseparable girls to estranged women who come face to...”Nancy • Raven Book Store
“I was awed by Michallon's ability to create such vivid portraits of every character in this book, while keeping the tension so taught, I had to remind myself to breathe. The "family man with a dirty secret" trope is not new, but giving all the power of storytelling to the victims in the killer's sphere, was fresh. That in combination with Michallon's atmospheric writing make this a must-read thriller. ”Destinee • East City Bookshop
“The women have finally had enough. They have all been wronged in some way by Jamie Spellman even if one of the seven has yet to acknowledge this fact. They begin meeting to discuss their pain and hurt and hopefully to find some way to get back at him....Then they receive a call from an anonymous number to meet in the secret room they have been using because of an undisclosed emergency...This clever but definitely dark mystery is told from 7 points of view of the women who knew Jamie, plus...”Nancy • Fiction Addiction
“Ander & Santi Were Here is the queer YA book the world needs right now. Filled with so much queer joy, profound queer love, and delicious Mexican food, it'll warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes, and make you want some tacos ASAP. Avi Roque's narration brings all the characters, but Ander in particular, to brilliant riotous life, and the depiction of immigration injustice will ensure Ander and Santi get lodged in your head just as much as your heart. ”Lauren • Chapterhouse Books
“This fun and quirky audiobook is the perfect listen for summertime. I can always count on Katherine Center to deliver a great “beach read” and this one is no different. When a portrait artist all of a sudden finds herself unable to see faces - including her own! - her entire life gets spun upside down. Great narrator, too! ”Madison • Saltwater Bookshop
“This book rocked me to my core. Adjei-Brenyah's writing is soul-shifting. He gives us a devastatingly unvarnished look at the US carceral system and a warning for what may to be come. The deep, multidimensional characters evoke empathy, empowerment, and sometimes disgust. I have never read a more evocative work of fiction. The audiobook is worth it for Singer's voice alone, but the entire cast is stunning. ”Grace • The Novel Neighbor
