I have been on this poetry and essay kick lately. Ever since I started posting some of my stuff on one of my blogs, I have found it interesting to see what others do and will pick up anything that looks interesting. When I came across this one needing a reviewer, I grabbed it up.
I have to say, this was really interesting. The continuing story of Rachel throughout was sad, but very interestingly done - loved the different perspectives.
The essay at the end - her reasoning behind the poetry, her thoughts and opinions on it, the motivation, the process - took this book from a good little book of connected poems with lots of feelings to an ever better book. When I completed the essay, I went back and read the poems again and they just meant so much more.
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
