Rate this:
Miserably trapped in small town Texas with no invention of the internet in sight, Ribon spent countless hours of her high school years writing letters to her (often unrequited) crushes. The big question is: Why did she always keep a copy for herself? Wince along with Ribon as she tries to understand exactly how she ever thought she'd win a boy's heart by writing him a letter that began: "Share with me your soul," and ends with some remarkably awkward erotica. You'll come for the incredibly bad poetry, you'll stay for the incredibly bad poetry about racism.

This book is fantastic, but a word of warning: It isn't just a funny, cringe-inducing memoir (though it definitely has a lot of that). It also gets very dark and real. It has dozens of potential triggers for people who've dealt with self harm or abuse. While she handles these subjects honestly and tactfully, and the book overall is hilarious, it's important to know what you're getting in for.
