FIELD TRIP TO THE MUSEUM

by Jacqueline Jules


Field Trip to the Museum  is a thematic collection in the voice of an eighteen-year-old girl examining her life during weekly sessions with a psychologist. In 25 narrative poems, Jules tells the moving story of a young girl who travels away from self-destructive behavior to a new acceptance of herself.


"Field Trip to the Museum is a powerful, yet graceful collection of poems that express the emotional turmoil of youth.  With hopeful verses such as 'An Oyster's Luck,' Jules traces the path toward adulthood."  —Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-Winning author of The Surrender Tree



"Jacqueline Jules’ poems surprise and delight. Homing in on the specific, they illuminate what’s most human in us all."  – Barbara Ann Porte, author of Something Terrible Happened and He’s Sorry, She’s Sorry, They’re Sorry, Too.

"Jacqueline Jules demonstrates her versatility as a writer with this collection of compelling YA poems, several of which can serve as mentor texts for teen poets." —Janet S. Wong, poetry anthologist and author of Good Luck Gold, A Suitcase of Seaweed, The Rainbow Hand, and Behind the Wheel.
