    This book inspired me so much. I agree with the other reviewer:

    This book inspired me so much. I agree with the other reviewer: this book induces the creativity to write. Addinizio became my favorite poet when I read this book. Because of her, I was able to discover that contemporary poetic voices can be relevant to how I feel. I highly recommend this book.

    Makes you want to write

    Reading these poems was like reading about every relationship I'd ever been in. Addonizio, one of my favorite poets no contest, has such an edge to her, she writes things you never want to say out loud, which is probably why I adore her like I do. Read this short book and I promise you'll be hooked.
