    Melissa Jennings delves deep into the question of what it means to belong to ourselves once we've experienced pain. Laden with powerful imagery and defiance, The Body Remembers reminds us that while the healing process is often exhausting and messy, it's always going to be worth it. Bo...

    This is a difficult collection to review due to the deeply personal nature of the content, so with reference to the subject matter I'll say only this - I have the greatest respect for Melissa Jennings for sharing this collection with the world. It must have been incredibly difficult to...

    * I was given a digital copy for an honest review * The Body Remembers is raw and painful. It?s not pretty because it?s real. It is honest, giving truth to something many people shove into a dark closet. It is powerful and chilling wrapped into the same sentence. The Body Reme...

    The Body Remembers is first and foremost one of the bravest works of poetry I?ve ever had the honour of reading. It is a vital and timely conversation asking frightening questions and giving dark, honest answers. It is chilling and impressive, how this collection is so heavy, and yet...

    This is an incredibly poignant and heavy hitting collection of poems dealing with issues of sexual assault and the treatment of victims. I hang on each line, almost afraid to read on, but compelled to continue by Jennings' complex and unblinking text. This piece uses its short length t...

    The Body Remembers is an unflinching account of raw suffering, fearlessly plunging headfirst into something heartbreakingly honest on every page. This collection asks questions to the darkest parts of today?s world and then shouts the answers back at you. Brave and liberating, these ...

    ?The body remembers? was just wow, in every sense of the word, wow. The poems are strong from start to finish and utterly heart breaking. The amount of love I have for this poet is monumental, it took me quite a while to get over this collection, but its words still linger around m...

    The Body Remembers is a timely collection that has the difficult conversations about the traumas that our society perpetuates and many refuse to admit exist. Melissa brings us into their internal conversation and brooding while not falling short of creative writing and pieces that can ...
