Format: Paperback
Far from being the promised "pee your pants laugh fest", Teen Angst is an utterly generic - and bland - collection. Although one of two of the poems evoked a grin, for the most part, these are thoroughly unremarkable, and a far cry from being "so bad they're good". I found the blurbs leading into each of the entries much more interesting than the actual poems, establishing the context in which each was written, but still felt as though something was missing. Great idea, but strangely unfunny.

Format: Paperback
I was actually looking forward to getting Teen Angst in the mail, but after reading through it, I was disappointed. I found only a few poems to be even remotely funny: 4 exactly. The rest were just really bad poems. The introductions to the poems were often humorous, but the individual poems consist of hardly any humor. I felt as though I was grading an 8th grade English class' poetry assignments. Of course, that's what some of these poems are...Certainly NOT the pee-in-your-pants laughing I was promised.

By Libra on August 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
The first and definitive work of its kind, this anthology contains poems written in the heat of intense adolescent emotional distress and introduced by the now angst-free adults who wrote the poems. Although these authors lack the literary pretentiousness enjoyed by true poetasters, their work is equally terrible. Arrangement is by such adolescent-appropriate topics as Breakups--I Will Never Love Again Poems and I Am Alone--and No One Understand My Pain Poems, etc.

One of the best parts of this truly comical collection is editor Sara Bynoe's eight step plan for teens interested in writing angst poetry. Bynoe's anthology was inspired by content from her website.
