Praise for Be/Hold:
“Nascent wordsmiths will be left keen to explore the expressive possibilities for themselves.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Her debut picture book Be/Hold: a friendship book is a poem that delves into abstract art, word play, a love song to a sweetheart, as well as acceptance of someone other than ourself. It’s a wonderful melange of all these things at once! It must be read to be believed.” —Jena Benton, jenabenton.com
