Amanda Lovelace, the bestselling & award-winning author of the "women are some kind of magic" poetry series, presents a new companion series, "you are your own fairy tale" the first instalment, break your glass slippers, is about overcoming those who don't see your worth, even if that person is sometimes yourself. In the epic tale of your life, you are the most important character while everyone is but a forgotten footnote. Even the prince.

I've read all of Lovelace's collections and have become a big fan of her work. Break Your Glass Slippers is no exception. The poems tackle Lovelace's typical themes of feminism and relationships. I like how each poem is structured like a fairy tale. About half of the poems are laid out like fairytale warnings and words of wisdom from a fairy godmother. The other half reflect on being abused or hurt by a lover. These two halves work well together to give a powerful message.
