    I won this book from the Goodreads Giveaways and read it from cover to cover in that day Although the subject matter of the poems aren't really my taste I do have to say that Laura has a firm grasped of the language that is poetry I love to read poems that use odd or irregular words and phrases and she does this with ease I have even taken a few pointers from her style and will definitely use it in my future works Keep up the good work

    I received this as a giveway on good reads It is a collection of thoughts and poems While i actually found it to be a reading that was specific purpose driven i could not relate to it However I passed it along to a friend of mine who is a highschool teacher and she found it refreshing for lit assignments Lauras writing however is very clever and imaginative She is able to describe a concept rather then tell you It was a uick easy read with a important purpose
