Goodreads Choice Award-winning poet and USA TODAY bestselling author Amanda Lovelace presents the mermaid’s voice returns in this one — the third and final installment in her “women are some kind of magic” series, featuring a foreword from Lang Leav and 13 guest poems from leading voices in poetry such as Nikita Gill, KY Robinson, and Orion Carloto.
The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one.
About the Author
having grown up a word-devourer & avid fairy tale lover, it was only natural that amanda lovelace would begin writing books of her own. so she did. when she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found waiting for pumpkin spice coffee to come back into season & binge-watching gilmore girls. (before you ask: team jess all the way.) the lifelong poetess & storyteller currently lives in new jersey with her spouse, their ragdoll cats, & a combined book collection so large it will soon need its own home. she is a two-time winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for best poetry as well as a USA TODAY & Publishers Weekly bestseller.
“This is a collection that lives and breathes #MeToo. Each poem isn't necessarily about sexual assault, but rather surviving sexual assault. The final in Lovelace's trilogy of poetry books "Women Are Some Kind of Magic," Lovelace poured herself into every single word of this collection.” (Marie Claire)
