"'Hush' came about in almost every poem, whether she was talking about weather, or voices, stomping of boots in a rain puddle or just the rainstorm itself, there’s always a hush which only leads to a silencing. When we get further along in the collection, we find Amy, and Amy’s voice and Amy’s longing when she looks in the mirror. We are moved from that ubiquitous 'you' to the outline of 'me.'

"Truly an amazing collection of poetry from an incredibly talented writer. You will feel her emotions and be a part of her world as you cry, laugh and ponder along with her. Buy it, read it, love it." - Wesley P Pudwill
