Long before I asked her to marry me, I knew that Courtney Kampa was, without a shadow of a doubt, the most talented writer I know. Her first book of poetry just came out, and I say completely objectively that it is the most accessible, honest, emotionally wrenching book of poetry you’ll ever read. Even if you never read poetry (like me), you’ll laugh, cry (like, REALLY cry), and cry some more like I did reading this book. Her poems have influenced SO MANY of my songs, and I’ve included a few of my favorites for you to get an idea of how good it is. Seriously, go grab this jank on Amazon. I love it so much, and know you will too.
