Things I Have to Tell You: Poems and Writing by Teenage Girls (Betsy Franco Young Adult)

Teenage girls tell their own stories—in compelling poetry and prose paired with 42 striking black-and-white photographs.

The voices in this collection have so much to question, so much to grieve. They have so much to celebrate, so much to rage against. They’re ready to speak up and begin the conversation — with you and with the world. More than thirty uncensored poems are accompanied by Nina Nickles’s masterful photographs, which sensitively capture the moods and essence of adolescence. Here, painted in the words of teenage girls, is a portrait of their dreams and desires - a record of hope, disillusionment, anger, joy, sadness, and most of all, strength.

From Publishers Weekly
In Things I Have to Tell You: Poems and Writing by Teenage Girls, editor Betsy Franco gathers more than 30 poems by adolescents into a poignant collection of prose and poetry. Black-and-white photographs by Nina Nickles accompany each work, and the pairings offer glimpses into the writers' raw anger, budding sexuality and search for identity.
