Wow. I am unsurprised that this collection of poems has received so much acclaim. What a heartbreaking and uplifting journey.

I am somewhat new to the genre of poetry in my reading, and I feel like this book was a good place to start. You can tell from the experiences portrayed that it was written by a young woman, but it doesn't ever feel juvenile. I found plenty of poems and stanzas that I could relate to, and some of them walloped me in the stomach with emotion. It was a strong reminder that although our experiences are entirely individual, they are also communal; the pain we experience as humans is never unique, and we are not alone. And it passes.
