Author(s): Lili Reinhart
The debut collection of poetry from Lili Reinhart, the actress and outspoken advocate for mental health awareness and body positivity. Swimming Lessons is the first collection of poetry from one of the most beloved young actresses working today. It follows the euphoric beginnings of young love, battling anxiety and depression in the face of fame, and coming to terms with the end of a romance. Through it all, Lili's trademark honesty, optimism, and unique perspective are evident in her first poetry collection. Relatable yet deeply intimate, provocative yet comforting, bite-sized yet profound, these beautiful poems are about growing up, falling down, and getting back up again. They capture what it feels like to be a young woman in today's image-obsessed world, and how to follow your heart even when the odds are stacked against you. Accompanied by striking and evocative illustrations, the poems in Swimming Lessons reveal the depths of female experience, and are the work of a storyteller who is coming into her own.
