Foreign Exchange: A Mystery in Poems By Mel Glenn 1999 Morrow Junior Books. When students from urban Tower High School are invited to spend a weekend in Hudson Landing, not all of the residents of the rural town are pleased. The city kids will bring crime and drugs, some say. There’s no place for them in small-town America. Each urban teenager is paired with a rural teen, with interesting and sometimes, comic results. The drama isn't in the action or the mystery, but in the feeling behind the words.

Foreign Exchange: A Mystery in Poems. Mel Glenn The author Mel Glenn does an exceptional job with the characters and how they relate to real life. Although this book states an interest level as being high school level, it is probably better suited for a more mature student due to the serious themes and issues of violence explored. Therefore, I cannot say this would be recommended for all students, but a select few. It is a powerful book, though, and I really like the creative touch of narration explored by the author. The author Mel Glenn does an exceptional job with the characters and how they relate to real life. What is also quite interesting is that Mel Glenn had so many different suspects. There were at least four or five different possibilites.

I really didn't like Foriegn Exchange. It had many adult themes and I would not recomend it to a kid. It was about the murder of a girl named Karen. People thiought that the boy that danced with her at the Foriegn Exchanged dance killed her. This book is writen in poems and each poem is in a different person's perspective. Most of the characters are teenagers and in their poems, they talk about what teenagers think about.

I was expecting this book to be light reading, but it was too heavy.
A girl named Kristen is murdered and
*spoiler*
she was pregnant at the time. The book also never tells who the father of her baby was.(or who the father of the other pregnant character's baby was)
