If you have read Speak, you know how Laurie can write. You know that she writes from the heart and what’s real, and this novel is no exception. This novel is not one that can be power-read at least, not for me. Laurie talks to us now about her own personal life, about her own issues and her stories are no different.
You can’t help but feel the emotions that are present in each of the pieces that Laurie writes. There were a few pieces that I reread as they really spoke to me. I enjoyed the whole novel but I felt that her work in the second part of the novel was exceptional. These poems felt emotional charged and the energy flowing through them, surged. A fantastic novel by Laurie and I appreciate that she shared a personal side of herself with her readers.
