How To (un)Cage A Girl by Francesca Lia Block (ARC)


"The pain of wanting to fit in...
The joy of being consumed by love...
The shame of not feeling at home in your body...
The strength of feeling at home in you're body...
These are moments that ever girl knows...for they are part of growing up, of uncaging yourself from your childhood, your environment, your veiw of yourself. Francesca Lia Block follows the journey from girlhood to womanhood in this three-part poerty collection that channels girls' innermost feelings and experienses and celebrates women everywhere."
Personally I didn't like this book. It was confusing in some parts and boring in others. Its only caught my full attention about twice. In the beggining and the end. I thought the last two poems had a very good message to them. But the rest of it didn't really have a message. i don't think I will ever read this book again. <3

Hm, I'm not really one for reading poetry book from cover to cover. :/
Great review though.
