How To (Un)cage A Girl
Francesca Lia Block
from the book...
The pain of wanting to fit in.
The joy of being consumed by love.
The shame of not feeling at home in your body.
The strength in learning you're beautiful.
These are moments that every girl knows...for they are part of growing up, of uncaging yourself, from your childhood, your environment, your view of yourself. Francesca Lia Block follows the journey from girlhood to womanhood in this three-part poetry collection that channels girls' innermost feelings and experiences and celebrates women everywhere. It is a call to embrace the girl within, to heal her and set her free.
