Harlem. Ever since her body grew into curves, Xiomara Batista has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking. She pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers-- especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about. Mami is determined to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, and Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself. When she is invited to join her school's slam poetry club, she can't stop thinking about performing her poems.
Xiomara Batista se siente ignorada e incapaz de ocultarse en Harlem. Desde que su cuerpo se volvi©đ curvil©Ưneo, aprendi©đ a dejar que sus pu©łos y su rudeza hablaran por ella. Pero X tiene mucho para decir, por eso descarga su frustraci©đn en las p©Łginas de un cuaderno y recita las palabras para s©Ư misma como si fueran plegarias, especialmente despu©♭s de verse invadida por fuertes sentimientos hacia un chico de la clase de Biolog©Ưa.
