Book: Shine Your Icy Crown, by Amanda Lovelace
Each of Amanda Lovelace's books is filled with short, deceptively simple poems, usually with a tagline at the end instead of a title. Some could almost be called inspirational quotes instead of poems. But the poems fit together into something larger, a story about surviving and prevailing against the odds.
The theme of Shine Your Icy Crown is the Snow Queen from fairy tales, and how choosing independence will get a woman labeled cold or even frigid. The poems celebrate her icy crown and her willingness to be whole all by herself.The dedication gives a flavor of what to expect:
for every girl
who's ever been called a bitch
for speaking her mind.
so, like, every girl.
