Leave This Song Behind: Teen Poetry at its Best

Author(s): John Meyer


It's been 10 years since the last book in the "Teen Ink" series" Written in the Dirt "was published. Now, a whole new batch of teen writers has emerged with their own unique voices. "Leave This Song Behind" features the best poetry submitted by those writers to "Teen Ink" over the last five years. The pieces in this book were chosen because they were so powerful that they stood out from the rest. "Teen Ink" editors took a deep look into each poem's strengths then divided "Leave This Song Behind" into seven sections based on the poetic techniques or qualities that moved them most. Vivid sensory details made some poems shine; others caught their attention with simple, sparse language. Still others were chosen because of their thoughtful use of form; compelling stories; strong figurative language; unexpected connections and wit; and fresh writing about familiar topics. Dig in and let these brave young voices capture your heart and mind with their passion, their pain, and their amazing poetry!
