Try a book in verse this month!

April is National Poetry Month, so it’s the perfect time to try reading a book in verse.  A book in verse isn’t the same as your usual book of poetry.  Books in verse tell an entire story from beginning to end using poetry as the method of storytelling.  Check out these:

    As much as I dislike poetry, the shark girl one might actually be worth reading.
