Guaranteed to strike a chord with every young person that reads it, this collection includes poems about snogging, drink and drugs, families and friendship.



By turns, very funny, thoughtful, heart-poundingly exciting and terribly sad, this is poetry that grabs the reader, and doesn't let go until it's finished!

Here's what you say about us...

Polly Peters is a former English and drama teacher and community theatre writer and director. With Andrew Fusek Peters she has produced over 40 books. POEMS WITH ATTITUDE and POEMS WITH ATTITUDE UNCENSORED were both Education Guardian book of the week. She and Andrew live with their two children in rural Shropshire.

'Poems with Attitude' is bursting with the raw emotion and hormone-fuelled experimentation of youth... It is rare and welcome to find a collection that speaks so directly to teenagers.
The Guardian

You won't agree with all of them [the poems], but they'll get you talking!
Is That a Fact? (Scottish Booktrust)

If you thought poetry wasn't for you, because it has nothing to do with your life, try reading this collection!
Young Writer Magazine

Buy this collection and it will be read. Read by staff and teachers to pupils and then read by pupils themselves for both the pleasure and the pain the poems induce. [...] I cannot emphasise how much every school needs this - in the library, in the classroom, for assembly, for tutorials, for PSHE, left on windowsills for pupils to pick up - everywhere!
