The Rose That Grew from Concrete (Reprint) (Paperback) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised- I bought this for a teenager. I bought this for a teenager who is into the "gangsta" stuff, and reviewed it before I gave it to her (I was suspicious because I know of Tupac's reputation and was prepared to take it back if I found it to be vulgar or in bad taste). However, to my surprise it was very appropriate and something a teenager could definitely relate to. Some of his poetry is about how lost he felt, relationships with others, and how badly he wanted respect. Overall my thoughts are, if you're getting a teenager to read poetry, you can't really go wrong. I used his poem in a classroom once- I took three famous classic poems and one poem by Tupac, and asked teens to figure out who wrote which poem. Most of the students guessed wrong.When you open the book you see on the left side is a copy of his handwritten poems and on the right is each poem typed out.
