Format: Paperback
I bought this book several years ago and I have yet to put it down. I still turn to it for some inspiration or a papery shoulder to cry on. The poems contained herein are not only relevant but honestly and beautifully written. Very easy to read and immensely entertaining. I laughed, I cried, and learned to respect lawn ornaments. :D I loved it!

Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is a poet I had not read before. I chose her because I trusted the works published by Write Bloody Book and I prefer women poets. I picked two of her books 'Everything is Every Thing' and 'Dear Future Boyfriend.' Each book blew me away. She has a gift of seeing things and then translating them into poetic form with a humorous, yet biting tongue that makes each poem captivating. I read these two book on back to back days, cover to cover. I have since went on to purchase her three other poetry titles and I am waiting for them to arrive. I read a ton of poetry and no one has excited me like this in years.

Aptowicz kept popping up on my recommended list, so I was looking forward to reading this and getting hooked and continuing to buy the rest of her collection... that won't be happening. There are a couple of gems in here and a handful of well-put together lines that stand out, but overall the work comes off as bland and immature.

I picked this book up while substitute teaching in an inner-city high school. I was looking for poetry that kids who knew maybe nothing about poetry (especially contemporary poetry) could relate to and appreciate. Flipping through "Dear Future Boyfriend" in a Barnes and Noble, I thought it might just work. But I had no idea the first 15 year old girl I showed it to would read it cover to cover, entranced, and ask for more.

This is by no means just a book for young adults, but I think that story speaks to how accessible Aptowicz makes poetry. Her intelligence and honesty, combined with the brevity of many of her poems in this collection, turn her from author into confidante. You feel while reading that she is the best friend you always so needed in high school or college, the one who really understood what you were feeling and could articulate it in a way that made you feel less alone.

The poems in this book run the gamut from rueful to hilarious. My favorite is the heartfelt "Mother" which explains why the auther insists on using her middle name professionally. A sweet tribute to the sacrifices made by a woman of another generaton.
