I would recommend For Colored Girls to any woman or fan of women's literature. There is some swearing and some adult situations, but I feel it is suitable for mature teens.
As I read For Color Girls, I got pulled into a roller coaster of emotions. One moment, I was laughing and the next I was sad or angry. The poems between the covers really do cover a range of challenges women of all walks face. My heart broke for each girl and I closed my Kindle with tears in my eyes for the raw emotions and the sheer amount of heartache each poem portrayed. I loved each and every word and felt a connection with each and every girl. I can't wait to take what I read and put it to use when I raise my sons and my daughters and influence my nieces and my nephews.
I think any woman could relate to the poetry in this book. It is about what we all go through, and I could identify with every single woman represented by every color. Just amazing, that is all that I can say. Definitely a great read, and I read it in one day. If you are on the fence, you have to buy this book - you will not be disappointed.
