Fishtailing is a book of poems that tells a story. It is about four kids named Miguel, Natlie, Kyle, and Tricia. Natalie is the new kid whose only friend is Tricia. Tricia doesn't have many friends either. Miguel is an illegal immigrant from Mexico who has lost his mom. Kyle is not that smart and is too involved with his motor cycle to care. Together, they help each other survive high school.
I would not recommend this book to kids under the age of 12 because of the sexual references and violence. Overall, I feel this book was a little comfusing, but it was good and it didn't take long to read it.
