    I knew this book was going to be amazing before I bought it. What I didn't realize was what level of amazing it was going to be. I was scrolling through Facebook Friday morning and someone had shared a reading of Dry Cake Wishes and Tap Water Dreams. I watched it. Four lines in, I w...

    These poems were amazing. So incredibly raw and I honestly didn't know what to expect. I saw a few videos of Rachel Wiley on Facebook and just couldn't put off buying the book any longer. Her words are emotional and I could relate them on more than one occasion. I love her spirit and h...
