This book is an emotion filled, heart-tugging group of words that follows the life experiences of a young girl to a woman. A lot of these poems give a release of feelings for certain experiences. I was raped the summer before I started high school. Which I believe this was part of what made me a little hesitant of people. My assailant was a former acquaintance. Later in life, I went through the typical growing up, and liking boys that really never paid any attention to me. Then when I was about 21 my grandfather became ill, and I learned that he had been in remission for years. This is when I started to grow up really fast.
