"Poetry is nothing more than pretty words telling ugly truths"
And so the journey begins into Writing Away Tragedies. Reading this book was like being on a roller coaster ride while catching glimpses of your own life. I felt like I was reading through a very personal memoir. Christy is witty, honest, and raw. I wasn't expecting to feel so connected to the poems and finding so much truth and meaning in them. And it was such a great surprise. The poems touches on a lot of subject matters like love, heartache, family, self-harm, writing, and bullying. Most of all it is darkly romantic and a letter to writers everywhere. It is about things every young girl have probably went through or heard their friends going through. It will make you look at life in a new way and quite honestly leave you breathless.
