Unlike most other sappy YA novels, Marie Jaskulka’s The Lost Marble Notebook of Forgotten Girl and Random Boy is a realistic love story set to poetry. Forgotten Girl is a poetry-loving teenager who is going through a rough patch in life: her parents are getting a divorce and her mother is struggling with depression. However, she meets a good-looking popular teen named Random Boy who also secretly writes poetry in an attempt to make sense of his life. Their star-crossed love story is told in heart wrenching poems, and even if you’re not a teenager yourself, you can’t help but get swept up in their tale.
