I fell hard into the simple beauty of this book. What a strange and brilliant trip into poetics, Gizzi breathes life back into poetry over and over again. Here, each new line creates a new language, one that at times reads like a conflation of Rimbaud's Illuminations and the early works of William Carlos Williams. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell

Daley-Ward's writing has a cadence like an undertow - snatches you footing from you and pulls you into the story, until before you know it you're miles out to sea and surrounded by her words. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Depression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim is a collection of poems dealing with depression: thoughts, what she wishes others knew, conversations she had, the struggle and finally, the hope they have that they will be well someday. Even if you have not suffered from depression, anxiety or other mental health issues this is still a great book to read. If you have not had a family member or friend or other loved one suffering this is still a great book to read. If you have or are dealing with mental issues please read.

Remember the sophomore album of your favorite band? The excitement of knowing it wasn't a one-off phenomenon, these guys were here to stay, and damn it if you couldn't see exactly how much they'd grown in part 2? Here's that feeling, encapsulated in a book as slim and attractive as you are in your head. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus
