About the Book

It’s no secret that when children like poems or songs they’ll willingly give their approval. They are refreshingly ingenuous and will no doubt like some of this silliness. It’s sometimes harder for adolescents and Adults to reveal their personal preferences, for fear of criticism or exposure. Although they may identify with some of the expressions of thought, observations or emotions in this book, they will at times keep their opinions secret. Official Secret offers enjoyment, interpretation, debate, as well as provocative and evocative thoughts across a range of age groups. Can you be trusted not to share the contents of this book with others?
