City of Saints and Thieves, and it's Slightly Childish Comparison to Pocahontas

While reading City of Saints and Thieves, I, admittedly, thought about putting the book down more than I should have.

It pours out of the jug, condensation dripping slowly and transferring onto your glass, as you sip eagerly. Honey, on the other hand, is thick and sweet.

And yet, despite…See More

The Way I Used to Be and Recognizing your Weaknesses

In The Way I Used to Be, Amber Smith doesn’t hold back, and jumps right in. In the very first chapter, Eden, the freshman band geek, is raped by her older brother’s best friend, Kevin, and then wakes up and has her usual pancake-and-orange-juice breakfast, with him sitting right across the table from her. She tries her best to tell her family, but no one listens to her silent cries, and freshman year goes on as if nothing ever happened. The dying of her hair over the summer was like the first…See More

There Has to be More Than This, Right?

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

It's an average day in the United States. Mothers and fathers are driving home from work, kids are in their rooms laughing and playing, and the sun is beginning to disappear in the horizon. Everything is as it should be, except for one small house in one small town, where Seth has just told his parents that he liked men, and their entire world fell apart. Pictures of Seth’s boyfriend and him in bed had surfaced on Twitter, and the harassment at school was hardly bearable by…
