An explorer, seeking out new ways to write, the best ways to show off the individual voices of the characters. I could really relate to all these characters. This book is about so many things. In a high school, you always find questionable characters, lonely people, evil friends, backbiters, depressed kids, suicidal thoughts, Rewlm this book four months ago and still trying to think of a suitable review.


As they sometimes say, less is moreand the book displayed just that. Jan 24, Owen rated it liked it. On the other hand, I prefer my poetry to be very dense and allusive, more so than in most of these.

Want to tell the world about realn book you’ve read? Saya butuh sesuatu yang fresh dan tidak lazim bagi saya, dan akhirnya saya bertemu dengan buku kumpulan cerita yang disusun seperti bait bait dalam puisi tapi ternyata tiap ceritanya saling berhubungan ini.

Teens don’t act like this is inand I highly doubt they acted like that in As a fan of David Levithan, I was intrigued when I found out this book was written in verse, a compilation of poems. The writing is sparse and lucid, and illuminates without preaching and with a minimum of sentimentality. Many peoples stories are told in this short book and their lives all connect with each other’s somehow. Hahaha setelah rokok, lagu lagu gospel, sekarang ganja yang mempertemukan satu lagi pasangan.

Except we get twenty viewpoints- one from each of them. Di bawah ini adalah catatan catatan yang sempat saya buat di handphone saat membaca chapter semi chapter buku ini.

Text Publishing — The Realm of Possibility, book by David Levithan

But mostly, as per its title, it’s about all the possibilities we hold precariously in our hand at any given moment- the possibility that everything will turn out okay, and the possibility that it won’t, as well as all the ways- kind and cruel, meaningful and trivial- that we connect with those around us. It is never what you think it is. That’s because Levitan didn’t care about any of the characters at all – the three mentioned were just in the book more often, so I remembered their names.

And I liked this one. I’m excited to continue making my way through his books.

It’s not long – only pages – and most of those pages are only half filled. It is a pleasant surprise that Rsalm didn’t resort to writing some sob stories and melodramas. This book may seem odd to you at first. I’m not talking about the walls.
