This is a powerful and beautiful book. I picked it up expecting to stare in the face with my own white privilege, but this offered so much more. Shraya gave us a window into her own experiences at either end of racism and didn't hold back when it came to illustrating the truth about how people of colour are treated and perceived. Some of the poems gain strength through her use of physical structure (how the lines are positioned, etc.). Some of her poems are utterly devastating. I highly recommend this book.
