Both books seem to find the funkier, more off beat, less-visited places and give a broader view of what the essence of a city really is. The format is perfecty bite-sized, 1 spread per location, and the photos are great and really add to the flavor.
Pick up a copy of Courage: Daring Poems for Girls, with SCB, and read the poem by Andrea Gibson. It is fantastic! There are several other really well-known poets, including Sarah Kay, in this anthology. This belongs in the poetry section – whether teens or adults.
