BOOK REVIEW: Jack B. Bedell’s No Brother, This Storm

Jack B. Bedell is one of those poets I recommend to friends who are looking for a stepping stone to more poetry—his work is accessible, rewarding, and steeped in keen observation for the outside world, as well as the inner workings of what makes us human.

BOOK REVIEW: Final Girl by Lauren Milici

I still get emotional when I remember that day, but through hard, diligent work in counseling, I am getting better and I am getting prouder of the person I am today and less ashamed of the boy I was. But wrapped with shame is the fear I forementioned and wrapped with fear is love. I use the word wrapped very purposely here—they are like blankets I use to keep myself warm, even though they can also smother.
