"Boys don't write poetry says," Jack, when he gets the assignment from his teacher, Ms Stretchberry, but bit-by-bit and poem-by-poem, Jack begins to get the hang of this poetry thing. He really believes he is not a writer and has nothing to write about. Nothing could be further from the truth, as the reader who flies through this free verse journey will find at the end. Along the way, our Jack, meets the poetry of Walter Dean Myers, and he finds a poem that he can connect to in some very special ways.
