You will then go out and shift the world.

In Alicia Cook's second poetic effort, designed in the style of an old mixtape, she sets her thoughts to a nostalgic tune. There is no Table of Contents. Instead, there is a "Track List," making it easy to refer to them to your friends with a, "Hey did you read track seven?!" There are no chapters. Instead, the book is divided into two parts, or as one would say in the 90's, two "sides." All royalties of this book are donated to www.willowtree.org.

What it truly represents is the heart-wrenching pain you feel when you love someone you can never have, someone you will never grow old with, yet you still yearn for.
