Kaufman, Caroline

Light Filters In: Poems

(3) YA Illustrated by Yelena Bryksenkova. A collection of short, emotionally honest poems divided into four sections chronicle Instagram-famous teenage poet Kaufman's journey from the darkness of depression, self-harm, and abusive relationships to recovery and empowerment. Specific traumas are left fairly vague, allowing teen readers to imagine their own hurts along with the author's and feel less alone. Occasional spot drawings punctuate the text.
