Overview

THE GIRL WITH A THOUSAND EYES takes the YA reader, bordering on the verge of adulthood through a poignant journey of life’s unexpected spirit-lifting triumphs and trials of personal transformation. From New York City club life and LGBTQ love poems to existential reflections on transmigration, Ji Strangeway’s poetic verses reveal a heartfelt narrative of self-discovery. Alliterative lines, bold stanzas and lulling metaphors awaken the dreaming psyche with promise and lead us poem by poem, toward the heart of the divine. Strangeway invites you to lose the notion of all things transitory and trivial, to discover what really matters in this life: unseen beauties that keep the golden flame in our souls kindled.
