To Make Monsters Out of Girls Reviews
1. I think I'm just sick of the subject matter, but if I was going through a breakup, I would relate better. Also, I know what I'm getting into when I read Amanda Lovelace, so I guess it's my own fault.

3. I did like the size of the book and the illustrations and color scheme.
4. Poems I did like:

You may not be in this situation but you will know someone who e ...more
Amanda’s work is an automatic buy for me! I read this in one sitting, It’s AMAZING! I cried with parts that are extremely relatable to my experiences, just like Ive done with her other books as well! It helped me think about the fact that I’m not the only one that has gone thru certain situations... the words of encouragement and the resilience is captivating.. I absolutely loved the artwork! thank you for this. I look forward to your next book!
