The Poet X

Elizabeth Acevedo

I fell in love at slam poetry. This one will stay with you a long time. - Angie Thomas, bestselling author of The Hate U Give


THE POET X - a stunning New York Times bestseller with a powerful and unforgettable YA voice. Perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemis The Children of Blood and Bone, Angie Thomass The Hate U Give and Sarah Crossans One.

Xiomara has always kept her words to herself. When it comes to standing her ground in her Harlem neighbourhood, she lets her fists and her fierceness do the talking.

But X has secrets - her feelings for a boy in her bio class, and the notebook full of poems that she keeps under her bed. And a slam poetry club that will pull those secrets into the spotlight.

Because in spite of a world that might not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to stay silent.

A novel about finding your voice and standing up for what you believe in, no matter how hard it is to say. Brave, bold and beautifully written - dealing with issues of race, feminism and faith - this is perfect for fans of Orangeboy, Nicola Yoons Everything Everything and Zoella Book Club choice Moxie.


This was the type of book where Ill just do 50 pages turned into finishing it in 2 reads. I felt very emotional, not just because the story and the words themselves were so beautiful but because I knew it was going to make so many teens who felt like no one cares about them or listens to them feel seen. - Tomi Adeyemi, bestselling author of The Children of Blood and Bone

A story that will slam the power of poetry and love back into your heart. - Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak and Chains

Acevedo breathes words instead of air - Lisa Heathfield, author of award-winning Paper Butterflies

The Poet X is a story told entirely in verse. This in itself is nothing new. We have seen other writers express themselves in this way – notably, Sarah Crossan. The Poet X takes this concept and almost has writer Elizabeth Acevedo bleed her thoughts and emotions on the page. The story is about Xiamora. It is about being a teenager. 7.04.2020
