Book Review Alert: Tears of Me

  Book Review Alert: Tears of Me  Author: LaToya Martin Published: July 3, 2020 Publisher:   LaToya Martin ISBN-13: 978-1947928121 ASIN:  B08DL6ZFJ6 Rating: 4 First poem that drew me into this novel was something that could be considered as a goodbye poem to cancer. I love the last line. It showed the determination of the character to overcome cancer. My second favorite piece of work in this novel would be Walketh Out Of Heaven .

It seems like every poem has something to do with everyday lif
