Description - Falling Hard by Betsy Franco

From an acclaimed anthologist comes this unforgettable collectionof one hundred poems by teenagers, capturing the vertigo-inducing realm of romantic love. "But what I'll really mean isare you ready to dive in?This is not falling, this is landing." From "Gift" by Portia Carryer, age 16 The poets are straight, gay, lesbian, bi, or transgender. They live next door or across an ocean; they are innocent or experienced; their lyric explorations range from new love to stale love, obsession to ennui, ecstasy to heartbreak, and every nuance in between. Whether the romantic escapades described are touching, comical, or tragic, whether the feelings expressed are tender and sweet or brutal and biting, readers will find the love these young poets openly share to be exquisitely, excruciatingly, endlessly fascinating. Here is a collection to turn to again and again, because life and love keep on changing."
