Class Dismissed! High School Poems
Photographs by Michael J. Bernstein
from the book...
Have you ever felt that school isn't something to be taken seriously? Received too much advice about a boy you like? Know someone who calls the baseball diamond "home" because a drunk father makes his home life unbearable? Then you will feel as if you know Benjamin, Laurie and Danny - and the other students speaking about their lives and feelings in these poems. They evoke many different emotions - some pleasurable, some painful - but all a part of high school today.
