Book Review


“Poetry, for me, is so expressive. When I was struggling through my teens, not knowing what was wrong with me, not understanding the mental health system, poetry came naturally. Now, I’m in my twenties and my first collection is being published, and it still seems so surreal that this lifeline has become more than just my own personal release.” – Laura May

In turns haunting, tender, humorous and shocking, this compilation of work from Laura May, a young woman tackling Bipolar Disorder, is a genuine collection of thoughts expressed through poetry
