I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review through the Goodreads Giveaway program.

First off, I'd just like to mention how much I love the cover art for this.

Second, the contents of the book. All of the poems were beautiful as well. The way the words flowed together, the imagery, all of it. I don't read poetry often but this made me want to go out and buy more chapbooks. A lot of these poems just made me want to go outside and explore and have an adventure.

I'd like to start off by saying that I have to agree with "Caitlynn Day" about the cover art, I love it for it's simplicity and effect. As for the poetry, I have never been a big fan, but I have to say that I really enjoyed these. Thanks for sharing Andrea! I won this great book on GoodReads and like I do with most my wins I will be paying it forward by giving my win either to a friend or library to enjoy.
