Book Review - Limelight


About the Book

From thirteen-year-old award-winning slam poet Solli Raphael comes Limelight, an extraordinary book that showcases that age is no barrier to creating poetry that inspires social change and positive action.

Limelight is a unique collection of slam poetry paired with inspirational writing techniques. With over 30 original poems in different forms, Raphael's work tackles current social concerns for his generation, such as sustainability and social equality, all while amplifying his uplifting message of hope. Solli’s book also contains 5 chapters on how to write and read poetry, how to manage stage fright and writer’s block, and encouraging tips on how we can all make tomorrow better than today.

As a voice of his generation, and at a time when youth movements worldwide hold much importance, Raphael is taking on the word at a time.

The future needs you and me
to create equality
across all levels
of humanity

My Take on the Book
This is an amazing book of poetry that turns poetry on its head. The book inspires and through every word you can tell that he is working to change the world in his own way. The author shares words that are meant to encourage change with every word that is on the page. What is most impressive is that the author is only 13. The words that you will read in this book do not seem to be the words of a 13 year old, but someone that has seen experienced more. This is definitely a book that will make you think hard about the world around you!! Read this and get inspired!
