Walking Through Walls
Walking Through Walls gives voice to a new generation of children growing up in Los Angeles. At times that voice is raw and jarring; at others, oddly comforting. Often, it’s wise beyond its years — but it always resonates with the urgency of youth. Comprised of narratives and poems written by freshmen at the Los Angeles School of Global Studies, the book features, among other things, family histories, numbered verses reaching out to a bulimic friend, a rake named Country, multiple trips to the emergency room, and one hybrid love poem/ode to turtles.
