The book is only 13 chapters and the chapters are short, making it a relatively quick and easy read. Each chapter is set up to explore a certain emotion or aspect of life that every human-being has experienced to some degree, (Fear, Love, Dreaming, Lost, being alone and many more). What I think the highlight of this book is the author's ability to self-analyze these things in her life and transfer that way of thinking to the reader. Each chapter, while exploring a particular emotion/life experience through a poem (which are placed nicely in each chapter), she then poses those same questions to the reader to analyze themselves either through analyzing the poem or directly questioning the reader.
I would like to think that everyone struggles with self-worth(am I good enough?) and/or their purpose in life (what am I here for?) at some point in life. The author struggles with this and is very evident in the latter chapters of the book, when the author questions her own happiness and life. While that chapter is somewhat dark, she ends the final chapter of the book in a very uplifting and inspirational manner to push through life, never stop, everyone can go on to fly in all aspects of life. A Nice Read.
