The Sun and Her Flowers

5 of 5 stars

I have wanted more of her poetry since I read her first book, and this was exactly what I hoped for! Another heartfelt collection of inspiring poems about hurting, healing, and reaching out to others with your story. This book is broken into five parts: wilting, falling, rooting, rising, blooming.

It’s a journey that examines abusive relationships, femininity, and grappling with what it means to be a child of immigrants. These lovingly crafted pieces and illustrations hold nothing back, and I’m so grateful she has chosen to keep sharing her life with thousands of readers! I know I will be inspired by her work every time I read it. Everyone should have these small books on their shelf to turn to whenever you feel like you aren’t enough, so that you can hear the reminder that yes, you are.

If you’d like to see more reviews or buy a copy for yourself, The Sun and Her Flowers is available on Goodreads and on Barnes & Noble’s website here. Please consider supporting your local bookstore!
