In this powerful collection of poems, grouped into five age-aware parts, Lisa Anne Gundry shares the depth of her experience as a young victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a family member. Witness the shame and the anger, the fear and the triggers, the pain and the healing, as she learns to accept and to live with her history — but no longer as a victim.

This volume includes Bye, Bye Blackbird, which placed third in the adult division of the 47th annual poetry competition sponsored by the Dyer-Ives Foundation. Caffeinated Press nominated the poem Safety Blanket (Age 9) for the 2015 Pushcart Prize.
