The Princess Saves Herself in this One - Amanda Lovelace
I've seen some criticism for this book that it's not "real poetry." Honestly, is there such a thing? I used to write poetry as a teenager and, looking back, I could say that it's all rubbish, but the truth is that it was what I was feeling at the time and it's full of emotion.
In my opinion, there is no wrong way to write poetry. Amanda's collection of grows as she does, into the princess who saves herself. It's raw, it's honest and it's pretty freakin' good. There are some highlight-able, sticky note-able moments in this book, and it's one that I definitely plan to pick up for myself.
Note: A review copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of this book in any way.
