Review: Poisoned Apples

Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty - Christine Heppermann

These are a bunch of poems detailed and written beautifully. They are not your typical lovey dove ones but they take fairy tales and tell them how they are. The drastic measures girls take to be skinny, to be beautiful. It also deals with bullying.

Truth: Every poems is short yet very powerful. Here I was thinking I was going to get cool retales of fairy tales but instead I got the truth about beauty. The way it eats someone from the inside out. The truth of words and how much they hurt. Each poem is told from so many different point of views that you can’t help but be consumed by them all.

In short, this is great collection of poems that hits you right in the heart. Every girl wants to be a princess but getting there is not easy. Especially with the pressures of this world, girls are dying. The pressure to be skinny, pretty, popular, etc. Poisoned Apples is impressive.
