Tough Boy Sonatas by Curtis L. Crisler
Overall I didn't enjoy this book of poetry that describes life for a Gary, Indiana teen. I didn't think that it was easy to relate to and it didn't make me feel like I could truly put myself in the subject's shoes. The illustrations didn't contribute much to the poems either. Definite NAY.
