“A catalog of inspirational and emotional poems that aim to help readers find their own
journey to self-love, tell their own story, and forget about the people who never saw their
worth.” (Parade)

“I adore this new take on the Cinderella story. In empowering and inspiring poems,
Lovelace turns the fairytale on its head, in all the best feminist ways.” (Ms. Magazine)


In addition to writing the celebrated series, “Woman are Some Kind of Magic,” Amanda
Lovelace is a two-time winner of the Goodreads choice award for best poetry. (The
Goodreads award is one of the few awards chosen by readers themselves.) Additionally,
she has appeared on the USA TODAY & Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. When she
isn’t reading, writing, or drinking a much-needed cup of coffee, you can find her casting
spells from her home in a small town on the Jersey shore.
