I received a copy of this book from the publisher at ALA in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.

Goddu tells the true story of the fascinating life of renowned female poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.

This book flew by! I finished it in just a few hours. It's absolutely fascinating and really well-written. I closed the book feeling I had learned so much, and had a lot of fun doing so.

There's really nothing not to like about this book. It is aimed towards middle schoolers, but I feel adults can and should read it too.

I would definitely recommend this book. It's a great, fun way to learn about a fascinating women and be introduced to her poetry. ( )
