"This book was painfully accurate to how mental illness feels for those afflicted and I related to much of the content."
Christian Xavier, proud customer, on The Butterfly Project
"This book is a short collection of mental health themed poems. As I read through this collection of poems, I had an emotional response. I felt sadness for what they were experiencing, I also felt hopeful and encouraged. The poems made me reflect on my life experience and relive memories I did not think were so close to the surface. Poems are a great outlet for emotions. Great poems will elicit an emotional response in the reader or challenge their perceptions of themselves or the world around them. These are great poems worth reading several times. It definitely has a place in my poem collection."
Suzanne Hare, proud customer, on The Butterfly Project
This book was both pleasurable and painful to read at the same time. It's sad to think that a young person like Allie has suffered so much, yet pleasing to see she was able to express her pain in a creative way - which was hopefully cathartic for her, and I'm sure the poems will be relatable to others who have struggled with negative thoughts. The author is obviously a sensitive and talented person, and I highly recommend this book to those who have grappled with mental-health difficulties (which is most of us!).
Jez Inglis, author of From a Dark Place
