Today’s featured Heavy Medal Finalist is THE POET X by Elizabeth Acevedo. Heavy Medal Committee member Courtney introduces the book, noting that the title character “uses her poetry to find a voice for herself that is both strong and emotionally vulnerable. She opens herself up to the judgement of the world around her and is rewarded for it.”
