What is a novel in verse?  Well, unlike a collection of poems, a novel in verse tells a narrative story using poetry.  If you’ve read a book by Ellen Hopkins, then you’ve read a novel in verse.  All of Hopkins’ novels are great examples of how poetry can be used to tell a very emotional and moving story.
