Read full description of the books:
I loved the creativity that comes with writing concrete poetry and Blue Lipstick is exemplary of this. The story of a teenager sorting her way through high school is brilliantly told through a variety of styles, shapes and fonts. As in all concrete poetry, the form of the writing tells the story along with the words themselves. What I really liked about Blue Lipstick in particular is that the author never strays from the story in order to include a poem. With each new narrative poem, the story of Jessie's life progresses smoothly.
The variety of poems in the book offer Grandits the opportunity to play with many different concrete styles, such as a dialogue poem with "Talking to My Stupid Younger Brother Is Like Swimming Upstream in a River to Nowhere." Creating a block form in "The Wall" allows for the author to separate some of the main character's internal struggles visually for readers.
As stated in our text, contemporary poetry often comes with a honest and direct voice, as well as a clever non-rhyming tone to still engage its audience. Blue Lipstick exemplifies both of these contemporary poetry elements.
