B - Sarah Kay,Sophia Janowitz
The Type - Sarah Kay
No Matter the Wreckage by Kay, Sarah (2014) Paperback - Sarah Kay
She’s gonna learn that this life will hit you, hard, in the face, wait for you to get back up so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air. There is hurt, here, that cannot be fixed by band-aids or poetry, so the first time she realizes that Wonder-woman isn’t coming, I’ll make sure she knows she doesn’t have to wear the cape all by herself. Because no matter how wide you stretch your fingers, your hands will always be too small to catch all the pain you want to heal. Believe me, I’ve tried.

This is part of a poem by Sarah Kay. I saw her perform it on TED below. She also did this one. I loved her performances and wanted to share part of her magic for National Poetry Month. I've attached her books to this post as well, but the full text of the poem this except comes from, B (If I should have a daughter), can be found here. But it's so much better to watch her perform it.

Wreckage
Wreckage - Emily Bleeker Great book!

I was skeptical, as I often am when I get a book for free (kindle unlimited) but this book was a pleasant surprise. I loved the characters, the was it switched from the point of view of each of the two main characters who narrated the story, and the way it went back and forth between past and present tense. I couldn't put it down and couldn't wait to see what happened next and I was satisfied with the ending. I give this book a five star rating without thinking twice and recommend it to anyone.

Wreckage - Emily Bleeker

I felt cheated by the book's description..it's misleading!
I was expecting some deserted island with a weird mojo, i expected those secrets to be shocking, i expected some mystery, something...instead this book is all about how the relationship develops between the two survivors, a plain love story with plain charachters.

One of my favorite books so far this year.
Wreckage - Emily Bleeker

This was one that I couldn't put down. A story about a group of people who survive a plane crash, and their life on the Island that they end up on - for two YEARS! They have a group of interesting characters, and the book switches back and forth from present time to the past, so that keeps it interesting. The Author tries to make the ending a kind of "twist" - but I saw it coming. Even then, I still really enjoyed the book.
