However, the ending of the collection felt that it ran out of steam and it began to dwindle in its light. The concepts of family did shift from youth to adulthood, once poignant images of the family to emotional poems to family members. I felt the shift was a bit jarring and was confused at what created that catalyst of change, what was the shift in addition to aging? This poetry collection is sweet and touching. While it has parts to it that I feel are unexplained, it still gripped me and comforted me. A beautiful debut.
