    4. Elizabeth Acevedo s chapbook is a lovely and encapsulating collection of poems They are powerful sometimes sweet, sometimes morose They go back and forth between Dominican folklore and experiences in today s America I especially admired Acevedo s reflections on Afrolatinx identity My favorite poems were Beloved and For the Poet Who Told Me Rats Aren t Noble Enough Creatures for a Poem.

    5. Worthwhile coming of age collection, the highlights being the poem s regarding or alluding to rape culture, growing up being Dominican American, and the rich intermingled poems on Dominican culture, superstitions, and mythologies.

    7. I really liked the mythical elements, the infusion of Dominican culture, the weaving of Spanish and discussions on la isla y Trujillo, aspects of Dominican history I m excited for Acevedo s full length collection
