World Poetry Day

In honor of World Poetry Day, I thought I'd feature some of my favorite verse books, along with some I can't wait to read. I never thought I liked poetry, and then I read Chasing Brooklyn. Lisa's writing was so powerful, I named it my favorite book of 2010. If you're already a fan of books told in verse, I hope you find a few new reads from this list. If you're not or haven't had any experience with it, I suggest you start with this list!
