  • How the Boogeyman Became a Poet, Tony Keith, Jr.
    Katherine Tegen Books, 9780063296008, February 6, 2024 (Young Adult Non-Fiction)

    How the Boogeyman Became a Poet, in my opinion, is required reading. I could spend days analyzing Tony’s writing style and choice of words. This affirming memoir, written in verse, walks the reader through the beautiful journey of being honest with yourself and fostering community. This book is for anyone trying to put the puzzle pieces of their life together, but feel like they are missing just one piece.”

    “The writing in this book sucked me in and wouldn’t let go! A smart, vulnerable, and thoughtful coming-of-age memoir that will connect with many readers.”

    —Ann Branson, Beach Books, Seaside, OR
