Audies (2005)

An unforgettable narrative collage told in poems
Keesha has found a safe place to live, and other kids gravitate to her house when they just can't make it on their own. They are Stephie pregnant, trying to make the right decisions for herself and those she cares about; Jason Stephie's boyfriend, torn between his responsibility to Stephie and the baby and the promise of a college basketball career; Dontay in foster care while his parents are in prison, feeling unwanted both inside and outside the system; Carmen arrested on a DUI charge, waiting in a juvenile detention center for a judge to hear her case; Harris disowned by his father after disclosing that he's gay, living in his car, and taking care of himself; Katie angry at her mother's loyalty to an abusive stepfather, losing herself in long hours of work and school.

Stretching the boundaries of traditional poetic forms sestinas and sonnets Helen Frost's extraordinary debut novel for young adults weaves together the stories of these seven teenagers as they courageously struggle to hold their lives together and overcome their difficulties.

"Keesha's House" is a 2004 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year."
