Review: Elizabeth Acevedo Poet X

Absolutely loved it. Xiomara, is a teen that must balance her individuality as a young Latina girl growing up in Harlem. Acevedo paints a very clear picture of her characters through prose that sticks with the reader and rich description that jumps off the page. A wonderful story that peeks into the teen struggles, in particular, those caught between two cultures. It is so beautifully written I highly recommend this book. I’m ready for whatever Elizabeth Acevedo has next!!
