Blair Karsch, the substitute school teacher and self-published author, has written a book that teens of today can finally relate to. Going from school to school and talking to many students, Karsch uses the teen-agers' passions and favorite topics to create a poem.
Bigger Than Cool is a compilation of over 500 poems, taken from the several notebooks that Karsch has filled up throughout the years. This book not so lightly addresses socio-economic issues and their effects on marriage, teens, role models, public education, and politics.
Bigger Than Cool is a must-have for teen-age poets. Even though this book is "Inspired by youth and teens of the nineties," Blair is hoping to create a second volume of poems in the future, inspired by youth and teens of the coming generations. Karsch also hopes that adults can pick up this book and enjoy it as well.
