1.5 stars. Such a disappointment!
I was so excited for this collection because I loved her poem "Explaining Depression to my Mother", but it didn't meet my high expectations at all.

„We wanted to believe her when she said she was fine
Just fine / all right / okay / busy / good / okay / fine
We thought she would have come to us
If she was having any trouble we would have done anything to help
All we’ve ever wanted was for her to be happy
We did not understand why she would no...
