A poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. the princess, the damsel, & the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader & all of humankind. Explores life & all of its love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, & inspirations.
The Princess Saves Herself in this One is kind of a memoir-ish collection of poems and I really appreciate how Amanda was so open with her poems. A few poems resonated very deeply with me in a way I wasn’t expecting when I started this book.
I think a lot of the poems in The Princess Saves Herself in this One will be relatable to many readers and gives a voice to some issues that aren’t always represented in literature and other platforms of media.
