The 'hook' is, I suppose, the 'day-by-day' format - she looks up poems for each person's birthday, for today's date, etc. - which gets her reading all kinds of things. Not being particularly 'into' poetry myself I would not have expected it to be so popular, but she and all her friends love it and I think it will remain precious to her as she gets older. She now thinks of, and can quote, Blake's 'To see the world in a grain of sand' lines as hers (being her birthday date). How cool is that?
