This book had a great narrative way to tell stories and poems about boys. She focuses on the issues that teenage boys go through or could be exposed to like AIDS, heartbreak, pregnancy and family break-ups. She talks about how they handle it and how they feel when things like that happen. Some stories end well and other's don't, so you genuinely wonder if the main character is going to do the right thing, and that keeps the tension high.

Giamah
Our book club just read this book, a collection of ten short stories about teen boys, each of them different in how they live their lives and their attitudes toward the world. We all agreed that the characters of these stories are memorable, so distinctive. Our book club particularly enjoyed the story of the 16-year-old who is getting married to his childhood sweetheart, the boy who is living with this aunt, a lottery winner, and the boy who lives in Philadelphia whose police office stepfather wants him to stay at home with doors and windows locked but he takes off with a friend to explore the neighborhood he loves. Highly recommended

I am on my high school's speech,drama, and debate team, which is how I came to find this book.I compete in Dramatic Interpretation and finding monologues/pieces that are around ten minutes can be tough! I was familiar with Miss. Flake's books and I had previously read BANG (a great book to read if you haven't already). When I came across "You don't even know me" I knew had to get this book. This book has many different characters and stories that really touch on subjects that very few authors write about and write well. Each story is unique in its own way. There was not one story or character that I disliked. You have to approach each story with an open mind and be open to listen to the story being told. This is a great read for young teenagers but adults as well. Even though all of the stories are told from a male prospective that does not mean females should be opposed to reading it. I promise that you won't find any other book written like this. This is a must read. I am honored to say that I used "Infected" (a story in the book about a boy writing a letter to his Uncle informing him that he is HIV positive and the Uncle writes a letter back as well), for my speech competition this year and got 14th in the state of PA and I am my region's National Tournament Qualifier for Dramatic Interpretation. You never know what book may touch your life and guide you to amazing places.

I am a reading teacher and am always looking for books that mirror my students. We are reading The Skin I'm In together as a class. Students asked for more book by Sharon Flake. They love her writing and sense of humor!

Very interesting, somewhat unique view written in a way that kids will read and perfect for a book club discussion for junior high.

This book was a little disappointing if you were looking for a step up since "Who Am I Without Him" was written. The format with a poem introducing each short story is different as well as the subject of each story. I will not negate the reality that the subject matter (weight, friendship, marriage, gender identification, marriage) of many of the stories is real, the manner in which it was written in this book, was dull.

I really liked this book!! The book consist of a lot of short stories, I usually don't like books like that but each one of these stories was so interesting. Sharon flake is a really good writer, I like how she makes each character seem so realistic and completely different even though the book is fiction. My favorite character is Tow-kaye from the short story "scared to death". He's a sixteen year old boy who got has gotten his girlfriend pregnant and now is marrying her, but during the ceremony he realizes he isn't ready to get married. Overall the book was good and I would recommend it to a friend. I will probably be reading more of Sharon g. flakes books

Good for young boys ( even though I'm an adult woman). I HIGHLY suggest this read to black boys or even young adults who've had a not-so-usual childhood.
Reluctant readers will gravitate toward this read. Cover is inviting and makes young men in particular feel like there's no shame carrying this book. Educators and librarians need to have this in their classrooms and shelves. Excellent resource.
