Publisher Review

"this glorious, exhilarating anthology makes the perfect choice for any woman you know, of any age" * Daily Mail * on She is Fierce: this is a collection to stir the blood and resonate in the bones. * Guardian * A handsome hardback poetry collection featuring a wonderfully wide range of poems by female poets - many new to me like Wolves by Ruth Awolola. The perfect gift for a thoughtful teens who loves words. * Irish Independent * You could use the imaginatively organized contents pages like a chocolate box selector list to choose something to suit your mood. There's everything from 'dreams of freedom' to 'flights of fancy' and 'voyages by verse', each section enticingly introduced by Ana. Or you could just dip in randomly and you'll find that, whichever poem you choose, you won't be able to resist picking just one more - just like your favorite box of chocolates! It's no surprise that She Will Soar featured in the YA selection of Great New Recommended Reads for National Poetry Day this year. * ReadingZone *
