In a powerful debut, rising star Sophia Thakur brings her spoken word performance to the page.

 

Be with yourself for a moment.
Be yourself for a moment.
Airplane mode everything but yourself for a moment.

 

From acclaimed performance poet Sophia Thakur comes a stirring collection of coming-of-age poems exploring issues of identity, difference, perseverance, relationships, fear, loss, and joy. From youth to school to family life to falling in love and falling back out again--the poems draw on the author's experience as a young mixed-race woman trying to make sense of a lonely and complicated world. With a strong narrative voice and emotional empathy, this is poetry that will resonate with all young people, whatever their background and whatever their dreams.
