Self-help wrapped up in a book of poems is a very unique concept. I'm one of those people that just don't appreciate poetry though so I'll probably skip reading this book. I skimmed through the beginning and I'd like to complement the artwork, it's quite good. Thanks for the insightful comments in your review, they make the book seem appropriate for those who like poetry.

After reading the review I will definitely put this on my list to read. Sounds enlightening. I’m interested to hear of her life experiences and the fact that it touches on social media I think this would be great for teens to read.

Interesting book of poems coming from a very personal place. I'm glad there is a hint of inspiration and the author doesn't take herself too seriously with the humorous images. Thanks for the great review!

I have not read this collection of poems yet but it is nice to see something that deals with her background and things that happen to her everyday. Her mixed heritage is definitely something that adds to her collection of poems and I will definitely pick this up when I can. Great review.

It's very rare that I enjoy a book of poetry, and I don't see this book as being one I'll read, especially due to the "inspirational" aspects. Thanks for the review, just the same.

The theme of striving to be who we really are without regard for what others believe we are supposed to be is sometimes not as easy as it sounds. Thank you for your insightful review.

I was instantly struck by the first lines of the forward: "it's ok to not be ok." We don't hear that enough. This book looks excellent.

The review champions this book of poems, as a worthwhile and edifying read and the themes as topical. I look forward to reading this book.

I don't normally choose poetry, but this one sounds desirable with its underlying tone of encouragement and reassurance and its relevant themes.

This being a book of poetry caught my eye as I enjoy reading poems. Your reviews makes me want to read it even more. I like that there is encouragement and reassurance in this book. The 4 out of 4 made me put it on my want to read shelf.
