Kevin has a bad attitude. He has a real knack for rubbing people the wrong way. And he's even figured out a secret way to do it with poems. But what happens when the tables are turned and he is the one getting picked on? Using elements of subversive found poetry, Rhyme Schemer is an accessible novel in verse that is both touching and hilarious, and will inspire voracious and reluctant readers alike. It is a celebration of the power of words and their ability to transform lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In the richly imaginative Rhyme Schemer (which I laughed through on a 90 minute plane ride) K.A. Holt's sparkling poetry is akin to Cliff Huxtable's loonylook--eccentric, entertaining, essential. From the first Flaming Turtle to the last Shrieking Tornado, all I could think was, just like Kevin (her 7th Grade poet narrator), verse novels will never be the same. . "--Kwame Alexander, author of The Crossover
"This transformative tale offers important lessons for all persuasions of middle graders, whether bullies or targets, complicit or horrified bystanders."--Kirkus Reviews
"A strong anti-bullying message. ideal for classroom use."-School Library Journal
"Poetry-writing seventh-grade bully both is believable and sympathetic, and his voice rings totally authentic."-Booklist
"The book closes with a smile and a very important middle school reminder: Be Kind. "--Reading Today
"Bullies, those bullied, and bystanders alike will be left with much to ponder."--Publishers Weekly
