Description
"Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Since her body grew into curves, she's learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking. So Xiomara pours her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers--especially after she catches feelings for a boy named Aman. With Mami determined that her daughter obeys the church laws, Xiomara knows her thoughts are best kept to herself. Invited to join her school's slam poetry club, she doesn't know how she could without Mami finding out. But in the face of a world that may not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to be silent"--Back cover.
