9780761123835: Angst!: Teen Verses from the Edge

Every day thousands of teenage girls log on to a unique Web site called PlanetKiki.com. They come for the gossip, the advice and beauty tips. But mostly they come for each other. Seventy-five percent of Planet Kiki's content is created by its audience, and the most compelling chunk of that content is the poetry. Raw, soul-baring, outspoken, unfiltered, direct - here are the voices of teenage girls worldwide, at their most expressive.

ANGST! Compiles the best of Planet Kiki's poetry in an edgy anthology on the agony and the ecstasy of being a teenager. ANGST! Covers the full spectrum of the girl's experience: the struggles with falling in love, being unpopular, braking up, feeling alienated, searching for life's meaning, bonding with friends, even the awkwardness of not having the right clothes. Uplifting, commiserating, humorous, and always passionate about telling the truth, these are poems that speak from the teenage heart, to the teenage heart.

Following the poems is a Poetry 101 primers, complete with tips on subjects, forms, rhyming and technique, plus brief bios of the poets featured.
