THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY by David Levithan | Kirkus Reviews

I’m just not one for poetry! Each piece connects with each other piece, everything interlocks. I just levithn pick it up again.

See the poems in that section went in order of those characters listed at the verrrrrry beginning. Pevithan is never what you think it is. It must find its own way. The unorthodox writing style confused me at first, but once I got into the characters the book took off.

Which of the stories can you relate to? Intinya adalah love conquer all. Will Grayson, Will Grayson. That’s not a very good ratio. I was pleased that it had a core through which the poems were connected and it made the book feel as if it had a purpose or main idea, even if it was never clearly expressed.

On the one hand, it works: I know very few people who enjoy reading them but there are a whole load of people who have never bothered. I would tell them to listen to the sex, to the awkwardness that comes with being a young adult, but also to the profound love and grief and pain that these characters feel. This is a book of poetry, it’s written beautifully and so simply as well. We don’t know what to do with them if they stay.

About David Levithan When not writing during spare hours on weekends, David Levithan is editorial director at Scholastic and the founding editor of the PUSH imprint, which is devoted to finding new voices and new authors in teen literature.

It was simply a fantastic book. These stories and lives are interconnected in very interesting and often unconventional ways. It is a pleasant surprise that Levithan I didn’t know this novel was written in verse when I borrowed it from my library, but no matter, I love the format and David Levithan certainly has solid poetry-writing skills. It’s about a bunch of people. As a teen myself, I’ve seen enough relationships and I don’t believe teen romances should be classified as love.


Oct 07, Ariel rated it liked it. The characters really understood where they were in the world and what love is, and I did like that.

This book is about so many things. He is an experimenter. I posxibility like I would think the same way in their situations. It’s the realm of possibility open to us all – where love, joy, and the stories we tell will linger. Ya sutra lah mas David Levithan.

But that boy was not comfortable with himself. This book is beautiful. Also by David Levithan. It isn’t written like most other books, but if you open your heart you’ll get the hang of it in no time.

So right now, I’m lowering my eyebrows in a suspicious glare at David Levithan.
