Rhyme Schemer by K. A. Holt
Bully Bullied Bystander
All of the above
Kevin feels as if his life is in perpetual turmoil. He is a seventh grader with four older brothers! Yes, he is the youngest. Yes, the siblings are all boys.
But check out the brothers names.
Am I wrong or is this a sign that Kevin really is left out? He is ignored by his busy parents and bullied by some of his brothers. He expresses himself through poetry- not just any poetry. He uses pages from classic books and highlights words, phrases and letters to make up poetry. The poetry bandit wants to be famous, but it backfires on him. I will not give you any hints about the person who understands him and becomes his supporter.
