    Excellent! Starting out with memoir poems and growing into commentary poems, including laugh out loud, fun poems. Being one I especially enjoyed the poem, "Ex-New Yorkers." This book is fluid, it has no sections and doesn't need any, we grow with the author who is skilled and brings us along her ride from childhood to adulthood with opinions and experience we can learn from. Allison Joseph is a poet whose writing shines with perfection.
