These pieces were written specifically for audio and present a range of emotion, including anger. For too long, victims have been told to be quiet, to keep a secret, to be ashamed, to be blamed, and we now say No More. It is time to speak. It is time to form a

A collection of of 32 poems, essays, and stories that explores themes of loss, love, and finding self. Some very sad, all uplfiting, some humorous (the one about paired socks). A quick, powerful read (or listen). Mostly women's writing, but a few by men (the socks).

#MeToo - The variety and intensity of this chorus of voices is incredibly moving in ways that both inspire and perhaps, trigger...I took them in slowly and often only one at a time. Some gave me an honestly visceral reaction - others pulled up memories long forgotten. This is a hard, but oh so very important listen. The stories are truthful, well balanced, and performed with skill. Take your time with these tellings, but do give them your time as they all deserve to be heard.

Worth the read. As with many collections, there were some gems and there were some ... not gems. But overall, I lot of great writers who I wouldn't have been exposed to had they not been included in this collection.

A lovely collection, but at times inconsistent.

Some are hits, many more are misses. Overall, I do not regret reading this one. Had I finished it before reading Roxanne Gays Not That Bad, it may have received a better rating. ...more

AudioFile Review!
***Earphones Award Winner!***
*** Finalist for Best Original Work Audie award 2020! ***

If you're going to read this, do it in audio. Several individuals share their experiences with sexual assault. What sets this book apart from others like it is the wave of acceptance and love that resonates in the chorus of contributors' voices. I have never felt so heard, validated, and accepted by another book on this topic.

Tanya is a starving artist without the starving part. Maybe, then, she's a snacking artist. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her two kids and tiki-obssessed husband and writes quirky fiction.

After writing a gripping, dark, gothic novel IN THE GARDEN ROOM, Tanya decided to switch it up. She's hard at work on a romcom, which doesn't feel like work at all.

She likes to keep things
