"For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea."
- Edgar Allan Poe


Review by: Jesse Salas on Nov. 27, 2012 :
I read the book. It's amazing how the author is able to create such a book that can be able to help people who are in dark situations. Poet fan or not, I recommend you grab this book if you are in such a case like mine as well. I have a personal problem that I am dealing with right now. This book has taught me another way to view at life, coping mechanics, and more ways to deal with the general problems.

The book can cover so much. I can't decide with poem is my favorite because there's just so much, but I've read it all and they are very amazing. This book covers each subject: Relationships, Family, Bullying and so much more. It really feels like the author can almost fit in your shoe with this book.

5 Stars. I barley have any problems with this book
If you are in a dark situation and if you can't get out, maybe you should try reading this book and maybe you can develop more ways to get out of it after reading

Review by: A B on Nov. 27, 2012 :
Being a long time educator, I have never read a story of such woe and triumph from such a young woman. This truly discusses and defines this angst among our current youth with a poetic voice that speaks to all readers. It is amazing to read and see such a talent at such a young age. The darkness and despair of American children in the land of "milk and honey" is revealing and poignant. This is a great read and speaks to anyone of any generation the turmoil and heroism of overcoming all obstacles and becoming a 'human being'.
