annapi | 4910 comments Thanks, Susie, for your review that made me look for this book! I enjoyed it very much, it reminded me of the poetry book that kept me sane in my teens when I was going through the angst of my first boyfriend leaving, "How to Survive the Loss of a Love". Also very similar to another favorite by a Filipina author, "Somewhere Between Your Frown and Your Smile" by Mila Reyes Garcia, and the poetry of Javan, all of which helped me deal with a stormy relationship.

Not all the pieces in this collection spoke to me directly because I did not go through similar situations, but the poignancy speaks to all. The section on abuse was a little difficult to read, but it's amazing how she turns such ugliness into poetry. It's a great book too keep on the shelf for solace when relationships get difficult, as well as for empowering women.

Nice to have another social issues book slide in under the wire before the end of the year!
