I‘m trying to recover from a bought of the stomach flu.
This was a moving memoir that‘s also a rousing battlecry to believe, defend, empower and shout for those that can‘t. Even better listening to the author read this.

First audiobook down for #jumpstart2020! I was kinda disappointed by this one though. I think my expectations were too high because of Speak. Some of the poems were good, but others were ehh. @Clwojick @Lizpixie
I expected this short book to be a lot better. It‘s a compilation of short vignettes about Anderson‘s life and a lot of other stuff. Problem I had with this one is that the vignettes didn‘t link well together.After a while it felt like reading ranting. Very disappointed in this one as my second read of 2020. I wouldn‘t recommend it.
The subject was vial and so is the person!
The author was very honest and very blunt about Kelly's activities in many states with young girl's some as young as 13!
Jim DeRogatis was facing being sued by Kelly and his team but he kept the girls Identity quite. Good man.

This book is so powerful and should be required reading for all. So many of the poems perfectly express gender inequality, as well as the importance of speaking up. Each poem is clear yet has beautiful and witty imagery.
I had so much fun volunteering at the Goddard Riverside Book Fair yesterday as you essentially get to recommend books to shoppers all day long! I was recruited for the YA room, but I was able to zip around the last ten minutes and get this lovely book haul! I already read Opposite of Innocent and just started Shout this morning. Plus some holiday cards for #LitsyLove!
Have you read any of these?
