High school freshman Roman Santi has everything — good looks, great friends, a mansion with an Infinity swimming pool — except the one thing he really wants. A relationship with his father.
When Roman’s life gets turned upside down, he is forced to leave his pampered Hollywood lifestyle and move into his grandparents’ Midwestern home. Starting at a new high school is the WORST but Roman’s life starts to look up when his pink-haired friend Zuzu, and his crush, a classmate named Claire, introduce him to performance poetry through the high school’s Spoken Word Club.
Spoken is an uplifting, funny and heartfelt coming of age story that captures how the honesty of performance poetry binds together students from all different walks of life and forever changes Roman’s future.
