Reviewed by Tyrone Banks of Betsie's Literary Page

An emotional and thought-provoking insight into the heart of a young poet.

Shadows of a heart is a very versatile book that tackles sensitive issues and complex emotions in several ways. The poetry touches on a large collective of emotions and will make you see things that you may take for granted from a different angle. The author talks about herself and the image that she projects to others where as there is so much more to her - most of which is revealed in this book. The poems are of various styles and most of them could also be sung (I can't sing, so I didn't try...) In her poetry I can see her ability to write musical lyrics. Open her book to any page and think of the words musically and you will appreciate this book even more.

Most of the poetry addresses difficult emotions that adults seem to think that they own. However, today's teenagers and children see far more and experience more stimuli than previous generations did. I was born during the Vietnam War era but the war raged, as I played at home, unaware of any chaos. Today, children have seen the videos of 9-11 and are aware of the way that humans hurt each other. They are not shielded from the reality of this planet and Brittany Renée's poetry speaks of these issues. Read the poems Richy Rich and Peace On Earth and you will see that Brittany - and almost all teenagers - will not be denied the truth. They watch and they see the pain and they are not too young to feel a part of this pain as well.

She addresses the love that she has for her parents for being there for her when she needed a shoulder to cry on or a dose of inspiration.

This was so inspiring to read these poems by a girl so young. I gave this book out to a few people who I thought could be cheered up a ilittle more and this worked. We're all really eager to see how Dusty Angel turns out. I strongly recommend this book to anybody. Even if you dnt like poetry, it's so easy to relate to.

I really, really liked this book. I visted the website of hers and I'm really eager to see "Dusty Angel" now. I can't imagine it being any better. She's so young and so talented! I have given this to a few kids I wanted to inspire and I think Renee set her charm on them to!
