Meet Jessie.  She's funny and sarcastic and she shares her take on life with us through her poetry.  We watch her as she dies her hair blue, she suffers through a pep rally and tries to talk with the grownups.  Follow her through a year in high school as she learns about friends and family and gradually takes down the wall she has built up.
SUBJECTS:     Schools -- Poetry.
                        American poetry.
