Rani Patel In Full Effect a Best Teen Book!
The Genesis of Rani Patel
The rap and slam poems came first.
Out of my experiences.
Out of the experiences of girls and women I know.
Out of the experiences of teens I have treated.
Over the years, the words flowed. The flow turned into a deluge.
When the lyrical waters settled, there she was.
An amalgam of female voices.
Loud. Intelligent. Fierce.
