Does Your Face Fit?

Does Your Face Fit

Edited by Roger Stevens (A&C Black)

An anthology for teenagers produced in aid of nasen, the special needs charity, which includes winning entries from the nasen Inclusive Poetry Competition, this is a collection of serious and moving poetry. There are a few lighter moments, but many of the poems are sad – they describe childhood confusion and disappointment, neglect and abandonment. Written with insight and compassion, by some established poets, including the anthologist Roger Stevens, and some talented newcomers, including the teenage competition winners, the poems are likely to be loved by young people going through the agonies of adolescence. Those whose special circumstances make them feel excluded should gain the ever-relevant and valuable message – You are not alone. TUC
