Are You Nobody? I'm Nobody Too...

I was very pleased and overall, I highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of Emily Dickinson, or likes to imagine famous people as teenagers. It's an interesting book and probably one of the better ones I've read this year. I'll definitely be looking up other...
