Allen and Unwin; ISBN 9781741751604; 2007; p/b; 174pp
(Age Middle Secondary) A collection of poems and short stories woven around the theme of relationships.
The variety of writing within the book could be used to spark a number of writing activities for students, eg, poetry, alphabet and comments under different topics - the one in the book is on girls names, letter or email writing. There are comparisons too the one in the book uses the topic 'there are two kinds of people'.
So, while the book could easily be read and enjoyed as the collection of writings, I kept being enthused by the different activities I could use so many of the pieces for with students.
