BECOMING: The Life & Musings of a Girl Poet by Nadia Brown

This is quite a difficult review for I have to take many aspects of this book into consideration. The poetic side is fine and some well thought out descriptions are used for uplifting poems. However a few poems feel unfinished and certainly could be expanded. With musings it is highly dependent on the readers view and how compelling you put your points across. Once again this is sometimes the cases with some muses causing thought and touching your emotions. Other muses simply pass on by. Towards the end of the book, the poems cease and it almost has a self-help, life coaching feel. Which raises some good points, though how necessary it was is debatable. This uncertainty and questioning of what you are reading often deters from the authors hidden skills of poetry.
