Ryan Mishap
Amazing pieces from an intelligent, compassionate writer/activist. I have no idea why this is not more well known as her empathy, detailed thought, and committment to social justice for everyone is awesome. She is an excellent writer as well, though I will admit I do not like the poems--but I rarely like any poems.

Check this book out whenever you find it.
