    This is a book you don't want to miss. Simple, and beautiful, and heartfelt. You'll laugh, and cheer, and sigh, get angry, maybe even cry. The poetry is fantastic and the story is worth reading no matter you're age....

The verse format works perfectly. I want to get posters made of some of Calliope's poems. Also, the name "Calliope" -- did you know...
