Incredibly personal and moving, I forgot about words' power to heal until I picked up this volume.

What the heck is this drivel? This read like a teenager's diary that was never meant to see the light of day, not an award winning published work of poetry. The layout is also a gigantic waste of paper, with many having only 4 lines per page. I would not recommend this book to anyone, please read Ellen Hopkins instead.

Considering this won the Goodreads Reader's Choice Award, I was hoping for something with more original language. The story connecting the poems together is interesting but not enough to make up for the over-reliance on cliché at times.
