Audrey expresses beauty these writings, her poems are telling. I always measure my likeness to a book to whether I check the page number, if I do, then it means the book is dragging and if I don’t then it means that the book is engrossing. That is why I am so happy to write, that I did not look at the page number of this book once! It was absorbing, as well as captivating, I did not want to put this book down, and when I had to, I was sad because it really is that special. Audrey is a pure talent, and if you are looking for a stunning poetry book that takes you on an adventure then this book is for you!
