Sweet, Young & Worried by Blythe Baird

Mini Book Review

Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read and review Sweet, Young & Worried.

When I came across the book I realised that the authors name seemed familiar. I think I heard her slam poem, when the fat girl gets skinny in freshmen year. Aside from that I haven’t read or listened to a lot of her work but now I plan on doing so.

Blythe Baird’s collection is beautifully mature. Some of the poems make you sad, but there’s a sense of a person who has grown up in these pieces which helps a lot; which gives you hope. That our personalities are more than what broke us.
