"The Cool Kids" is a collection of poems, written over the course of six months, which reflect the moments of pain, excitement, surprises, changes, and self-discovery that occur while growing up. This is about the players, the couple madly in love, the band geeks, the athletes, the slackers, the honor students, and the prom queen. As different as each of these people are, they all have one thing in common - they are trying to figure out their purpose in the world. Vega tightly grips the reader's hand and she takes them to the places she knows well - the back road and the car stereo playing Fleetwood Mac, the hallways, the fields, the smell of evergreen trees and stale smoke, the corner store, the basement, the neon orange of the fuel indicator light. "The Cool Kids" is nothing less of a journey, where Vega tells the stories of the youth with spirit, nostalgia, vulnerability, and a dash of pure grit.

About the Author
Z. Vega, The Lizard Queen, and Neko Blue are just a few of the many pseudonyms this author has written under. Vega has published her poetry on various blogging sites, such as tumblr, WordPress, and Hello Poetry. The majority of Vega's work is about people and their hopes, feelings, and insecurities. Her writing is reminiscent of something like an old dream captured on a Polaroid, complete with film leaks and whiskey stains. "The Cool Kids," Vega's first published book, was released in June 2016, while her second book "Bedtime Stories", was published 5 months later, in November of the same year. Vega has plans to release a third book sometime in 2017.
