Jack, a young student in Mrs. Stretchberry’s class, is sure that he doesn’t like poetry. He doesn’t understand any of the poems he reads in class, and he is convinced that poetry is only for girls. Through his teacher’s gentle persistence, Jack begins to see his own life experiences in the poems he reads— and develops his own identity as a poet. This gradual change culminates in a visit with one of Jack’s newfound-favorite poets: Walter Dean Myers.
