Laurie Halse Anderson 💕😍 #nerdcamp
I'm a big fan of Laurie Halse Anderson, so I had high expectations, but she didn't let me down. This memoir in verse was well worth the read, and she told so many fascinating and moving stories from her life. I intend to revisit this one, and I definitely recommend it.
“this note about anatomy/ from me to you/is for the remembering/that after you speak/after you shout/your open mouth/will breathe in/the light for which/you‘ve hungered/ and your backbone/will unfurl until/you can again dance/to the beat/of your steadfast heart”
This book is powerful, especially the 2nd part. I like the poetry format, it makes it different than other books about trauma. My favorite book so far of the #BFC ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
