Guest Blog: Pat Mora

One of the books recommended by the postergirlz this month is Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems about Love by Pat Mora, who wanted to share a little something with the readergirlz:

Great to have my book of love poems included in rgz. Great site/great blog. Writing DIZZY IN YOUR EYES, doing a whole book about different kinds of teen love, was a joyful project. Know those Russian nesting dolls? We’re all like that, all our former selves nesting inside.

I love the nesting dolls image, and the name of Pat's book, DIZZY IN YOUR EYES, makes me want to do a swoony spin!
