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.

This collection of poems is insightful and hard to put down. It offers a quick, entertaining read. But with its strong imagery and impacting message, it stays with you long after the last page.

Branding Girls is a wonderful, quick read with the poems responding to contemporary women artists. Lots of fun and super witty!

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 quick easy read with a important purpose
