EXPOSED







Exposed by Kimberly Marcus: Book Cover

16-year-old, call-it-as-she-sees-it Liz, has a clear vision of who she is and where she’s headed. Her relationships with her best friend, her boyfriend and her family are practically picture perfect. Then one night, after a seemingly small argument followed by a shocking accusation, Liz finds herself alienated. Her relationships and her identity begin to unravel as she questions what she thought she knew about the people she loves.

 

With each snapshot poem in Exposed, Kimberly Marcus reveals frame-by-frame, a gut-wrenching and heart-rending tale of friendship, family, guilt and betrayal. With stark and striking word play, Kimberly Marcus pieces together an emotionally turbulent journey.

 

Thanks to Lisa Schroeder, Jeannine Atkins and now Kimberly Marcus, I’m fast becoming a fan of the free verse novel form.

I just finished a deadline thing, and can now pick up this book and am excited.

Glad you're a fan of the form -- and thanks for the hat tip! Are you trying your hand?

Um, no. I'm pretty sure that my talent lies elsewhere. But who knows, maybe sometime in the future...
I'm definitely up for reading more of them, though.
