Thank you, Hana Kopernik, for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for a fair review!

Heal. brings together many poems on mending different aspects in life. It mostly motivates healing to become a stronger woman. Through her words, the author aims to help the readers rebuild themselves and gain hope as a collective.

Some poems are long, while others only take up a few lines to get their point across. A handful of them were also accompanied by artwork of a woman’s silhouette in different positions. Each silhouette matched the poem’s emotion well.

My favorite poems out of the batch are “wound healing,” “the midst of a metamorphosis,” “confession past midnight,” and “take up space.”

My main critique would be how some poems repeated others’ messages. It kind of felt like a cool song kept repeating, getting overplayed. After a bit, I wanted them to branch into something more.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I like the message behind it.

Score: 7.2/10
Average rating on Goodreads: 4.3/5
