"What a wonder, to witness a poet of such talent make their debut into the world."
"Kara Jackson is a crucial new voice in poetry... Thrilled for this work, and all that lies beyond."
--Eve L. Ewing
"Jackson's voice is singular; it is intimate in its warmth and expansive in its imagination. We will be reading Kara Jackson for many years."
"Kara Jackson blooms multitudes...Baby girl did not come to play. She came to reign."
"A poet we will be talking about so long as she picks up the pen, this small offering of wonder from our Youth Poet Laureate announced a still budding and major poetic force."
