2017 Rebecca Caudill Roundup: Rhyme Schemer by K.A. Holt

April is National Poetry Month and just like the 2016 list, the 2017 Rebeeca Caudill list features three novels in verse. Rhyme Schemer by K.A. Holt is one of them.

Kevin Jamison is a bully. And a vandal. And a poet.

A Poetry Bandit, to be precise.
Stealing pages ripped from books, revealing poems found within.
Posting on lockers and walls, targeting teachers and students.

A poetry notebook, lost and found.
Victim becomes the bully becomes the victim.

Will there be an intervener for this rhyme schemer?
Hint: #LibrariesTransform
