Poisoned Apples by Christine Heppermann is a book of realities for teenage girls. It is a book of poetry that reveals the inner workings of eating disorders and relationships that everyone should know. It brings an understanding of struggles every young female goes through in school and at home and with themselves. Two of the most eye opening poems to me were “You Go, Girl!” and “If Tampons were for Guys”. Both of which I had to stop reading after because of the emotions and the realizations running through my head. Poisoned Apples was a thoroughly enjoyable book that can make the head spin with thoughts.
