(Actually more of a 4.5/5)

The book finally came today, and I read it, re-read it, and re-read it again after that - I just can't get enough of Meggie's writing. Her tumblr is one of my most viewed, I'm just addicted.

My favourite is the one about still not finding love even when you're 20 - what a beautiful thing to write about. I've never, ever read anything else that has captured that feeling of secretive loneliness before. God, her work is incredible. I loved every page.

The only thing that bothered me a little was the amount of poems actually in the book - there wasn't many. It was a substantial amount, don't get me wrong. It was set out beautifully, I loved the layout. I just felt like it was over too quickly.

I don't even know her, but I'm so proud of Meggie for having her book published, and sold in Barnes and Nobles. I look forward to reading her future poetry books.
