Book Review & Giveaway: Girls Like Us by Elizabeth Hazen

Edgy, fierce, and filled with emotion, the poetry of Elizabeth Hazen featured in Girls Like Us focuses on female identity and the contradictory personas women are expected to embody.

Throughout this collection, readers find poetry that covers women's issues in a unique and meaningful way. From beginning to end, these poems will get you thinking in ways you might never have thought before.

The collection hits hard right out of the gate by focusing on some of the names women are called. How are we treated? How do we allow ourselves to be treated? Other poems cover more female issues. What have we dealt with? How have those moments affected us and how have we overcome them?

 Hazen isn't afraid to call it like she sees it. Even if some of the poems don't resonate with you or your female experience, you will find something that speaks to you within this collection's pages.

I am passing this book along to my daughter. This is something that will speak to her directly.
