I was really excited to read this book because the concept and subject matter sounded really cool, and because this book has tons of rave reviews. A book about female empowerment? Sign me up! Reviewers said that this was a deeply moving ride? All aboard! Unfortunately, when I finished the book I found myself pretty bummed out and disappointed. I want to proceed delicately when I say this, because I am sensitive to the subject matter and can appreciate that the author's words are coming from a personal place... However, I had the distinct feeling while reading this book of poetry that it kind of reads like a series of bad LiveJournal entries. To be fair, there are some really beautiful moments, but overall these brief moments couldn't save the book from the often times *too personal* and *too casual* tone overall. I think this author has potential, but this book just wasn't for me.
