Reviews

"A moving poetry collection by a queer Muslim writer exploring all the facets of her identity."--Domino
"[Roisin's] writing is intensely vulnerable and through revealing her own experience she reflects so many others."--Bustle
"When I first encountered Fariha's writing, I let out a sigh of relief. Was it refreshing? Yes. But there was something more. Her words allow us to feel visible. Fariha's writing has the power to heal and transform. She pulls you into her stories until you're at the edge of your seat, emphatically rooting for her subjects."--Rupi Kaur
"...a collection of poems that aims to heal..."--Vogue online
"...heart-aching and emotional while offering a sense of hope in a world that desperately needs it."--Little Infinite
"In these short and potent stanzas she makes it clear that while she's been able to lay down the ghosts that have haunted her own self-worth, loving herself back to health after the mental and physical exhaustion of weathering constant aggressions is a long and continuous process."--Teen Vogue
