Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989

Book.

You’re a shut up novel
And your cover caught my eye.
I want to open you up
And see you from inside.

I’d like to know your secrets,
Your strengths and your fears.
Find out all your flaws
And the things that you find dear.


I want to memorize every page,
Every syllable, every line.
Read and read and read
Until I’ve worn down your spine

I find you very intriguing,
Although I can’t say why,
But soon I’d have the answers
If you’d just give me the time.

It may seem alarming
But know my words are true,
When I say I’ve never seen
A book that’s quite like you.

And I know you won’t believe me,
But know my words aren’t lies,
When I say you’re worth
Every page, every syllable
And every line.

That is SO good. I really LOVE when someone puts together a good piece about books/ a book. And this is a really good one :)

Great! I like how it ended up being more than just a book.
