About this deal

I think the book will resonate with anyone who has had to fight to be accepted - whether it’s self-acceptance or acceptance from people/society. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc. It’s a beautiful book full of brilliantly written poems that speak volumes to both your heart and soul.

It is also a collection that I have gifted because of how beautifully it is written and put together.

In this truly stunning guided journal, Róisín addresses ableism, thin privilege, fatphobia, white privilege, and more, using empowering quotes and prompts to encourage you to appreciate the changes your body has gone through, explore beauty standards and ideals, reinforce self-confidence, and, ultimately, become the best version of yourself. We read of her experiences of 9/11, her family’s experiences of wars undocumented on white media, of 1971.

Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Roisin and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities. I found her writing to be raw, but also soft enough to gently draw out the words into a series of beautiful poems.

There have been a couple of recent exceptions, so a while later I requested a copy and I’m so glad I did; it’s the best thing I’ve read this year. The underdeveloped metaphors along with the insistence of talking about the same themes that have already been discussed in plenty of other poetry collections before made me give this book only 1 star - it brings to the literary scene absolutely nothing new.I cannot rate someone's life experiences, but I can rate their poetic language, arrangement, sensitivity, since all of them are publicly open.

Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between RoísiÔn and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities. I can't rate a life, and although I understood and resonated with some of the poems, or some bits of them, they don't speak about my own experiences.I also really loved the artwork, i think the cover and inside art is really beautiful and goes with the book contents really well. How to Cure a Ghost explores a young woman’s journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, and deserves to be as widely read as possible.
