"I was smitten, bitten by a love bug or somethingI didn't even care that I'd just been hit.I was in deep smit." Laura Crapper, a seventeen-year-old combat-boot-wearing poet with spiked red hair, renames herself Sister Slam and hits the road with her best friend, Twig. On the way into the slam poetry world of New York City, they hit a pig, get pulled over by the cops, fight with a poetry contest's judge, lose the contest, get into two more fender benders, fight with each other, and finally land on the front page of a newspaper in New York City for their amazing impromptu performance at the famous Tavern on the Green. The girls and their fresh style of poetry take the city by storm, but when Laura's father back in Pennsylvannia has a heart attack she must face her fears about home and the still-raw loss of her mother. An inspiring romp of a coming-of-age story, written entirely in Laura's in-your-face slam poetry style, that proves you don't have to give up your home in order to live your dream.
