I received this poetry book from Netgalley. I can’t say I know a lot about poetry but I can say this book is gorgeous. I read it in one sitting. In the dark. In my bed. Which was a great location because most of these poems are about a break up, sadness, anger, and many other things that wouldn’t have felt as magnified on a sunny day outside. Trista experiences a break up with a girl she wasn’t really dating. They were friends and yet also more. This girl she was in love with said horrible things about same sex relationships, all the while loving Trista. Or Trista was feeling like she loved her. How can you really know when someone loves you? So she left. Moved to Australia. And tried to forget her first love. There are also some poems about being bisexual and her relationship with her mother. All around it was just so moving. I loved it. It will be released in May of 2018. Put it on your list!
