Rating: 4/5 stars.
Melissa is a talented poetess and a moving talent onstage. And cue, "the women in my family are bitches..."
I read this July 27-28 and gave it 3 ⭐️ on Good Reads. I kind of feel meh about this collection. Lozada-Olivia has a way with words but this short collection is rather repetitive. I think the mark of a good poet is someone who can make you think and empathize with them or the topic they are writing about. I have a feeling that this collection won‘t stay with me for very long, which is unfortunate as it should.
