“For a short collection, a lot is packed in about the quiet and the loud moments of life – romance and breakups; uncertainty and confusion; home and away; men, music, and the stars. The delicate power of the work makes the sadness of the portrayed events uplifting as well as mournful, making this well worth a read – I promise it won’t be a mistake.”-Katy Lees, writer and psychotherapist (Review)
“Some of the poems when read out loud, echoed the soundtrack to a coming of age movie or the inner thoughts of a gentle soul that has overcome so much pain. Juliette seems to have a talent for writing striking yet obscure visuals and creating just the perfect rhythm in a poem.”-Venus Davis, writer (Review, Marías at Sampaguitas)
“[Sebock] takes chaos and transforms it with succinct, beautiful language. She takes her readers through this narrative as it happened, honestly, and it’s all the better for it.”-Keana Labra, writer (Review, Rose Quartz Magazine)
