    1. Through poetry Anne Marie shares her observations on her world, including her feelings about her neighborhood, her family (mom, twin sister, and younger sister), and her anger toward her father, who abandoned them two years earlier. Written in free verse, the poems paint a poignant portrait of Anne Marie’s struggle to let go of her painful past and embrace a hopeful future. Glass’s various forms of illustration (watercolor, pencil, photography, collage) add life and energy to the poetry. Old [...]

    2. J Short Chapter ZimmerWritten in free verse poetry, the reader gets to know Anne Marie's inner thoughts about her twin sister, her parents, her neighbors, by spying on them from the top of a tree in her yard. From each page you get closer and closer to her heart and you feel like you really know her inside and out. A unique side line is that both the author and illustrator are twins.

    3. This was written from the viewpoint of a 9 year old girl who shows us her poetry and drawings. The poems were moving, as were the illustrations. I cried at some points. I would recommend this to anyone who loves poetry or children.

    4. Again, Zimmer has a winner - I swear this woman can get inside the heads of children in their tween years. Another beautifully written book about the angst children feel in a changing home environment.

    5. Somewhere on the line between a book in verse and a collection of connected poems, I enjoyed this book about a twin whose family goes through changes she does not welcome after her father moves out. The pictures are very colorful and engaging, and there are some wonderful poems in this volume.

    6. Narrator: Anne Marie (twin) paints a picture of family life after father leaves them - takes you from grief to hope from Anne Marie's point of view
