Review by: christine Swanberg on Aug. 19, 2012 : (no rating)
A unique concept. Fresh starts. Clever prompts for a variety of levels. Nancy Breen's collection of poetry quotes makes the reader and writer think, reflect, and write in new ways. And the bonus is a mini-trip into the literary world of tried-and-true poems sure to whet the appetite. Useful and innovative.
