I don't claim to understand poetry, so when I review this piece, it is as a "reader" in general, not a well verse poetry reader who knows what they are talking about. You can purchase this poetry collection on Amazon through the link below.
Hi, My Name is Bobo.: (A Weekend in the Life of a 5th Grader) (Step into the World of Bobo Book 1)
The voice kept me reading this book because it really did read like it was written by a young man. I was a little confused about the intended audience because as an adult I craved a little expansion into deeper and possibly darker topics that in places seemed to be lurking behind the words. However, while the content level and prose were ok for young readers it wouldn't really hold my daughter's attention.
I think it works best as a nostalgia piece, but since my childhood was very different from the one described, there were places where I felt like I was reading a letter written for someone else.
