    Branches is the poetry collection of Rhiannon McGavin, the youth poet laureate of Los Angeles 2016. Her unique voice lifts the reader off the page and into a vision of hot LA summers and days in Paris. This is a bittersweet yet hopeful collection that could've only been written in 2016, cleverly covering sensitive topics in a way that doesn't seek to alienate the reader in a flurry of strong language. McGavin expertly describes traumatic experiences and bitter hurt as well as hopeful love in thi Branches is the poetry collection of Rhiannon McGavin, the youth poet laureate of Los Angeles 2016. Her unique voice lifts the reader off the page and into a vision of hot LA summers and days in Paris. This is a bittersweet yet hopeful collection that could've only been written in 2016, cleverly covering sensitive topics in a way that doesn't seek to alienate the reader in a flurry of strong language. McGavin expertly describes traumatic experiences and bitter hurt as well as hopeful love in this collection alongside her more current event oriented pieces. As a long time subscriber to Rhiannon's YouTube channel, reading this felt like coming home. I highly recommend this book to anyone who can appreciate a mix of classic style with something new and fresh that feels almost like biting into a summer tangerine. You can see her read poems from this book and more on her YouTube page, thegeekyblonde. Rhiannon, if you're reading this, thank you. Your voice has fueled me though my high school years, so it is the least I can do to give you a good review on Goodreads.
