Abstract: 
"Tara Jean Betts has crafted a manual of sweet lyric, corner doowop and unsettling truths, an unerring guidebook for the colored girl who is born into several worlds at once. Praise this raging poetess for trumpeting that hidden voice, for baring its blade edges and giving it space to scream. Her poems are too true to be kept secret and too stunning to be denied."
