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.
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.
