Praise

Starred review, Kirkus Reviews, February 2007:
"[R]eaders come away with a sense ofreally knowing Plath . . . a must for any young-adult reader of poetry or Plath."

Starred review, Booklist, February 15, 2007:
"[A]n intimate, comprehensive, imaginative view of a life, which also probes the relationships between poetry and creativity, mental fragility, love, marriage, and betrayal."

Starred review, The Horn Book Magazine, March/April 2007:
"Hemphill’s verse, like Plath’s, is completely compelling: every word, every line, worth reading."
