Description

A poet, journalist, and activist, Alicia Cook offers a soundtrack of survival.

Structured like an old-school mix-tape, Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately is Alicia Cook's lyric message to anyone who has dealt with addiction. "Side A" touches on all aspects of the human condition: life, death, love, trauma, and growth. "Side B" contains haunting black-out remixes of those poems.

Review quote

Named one of the "25 Best Poetry Books for Teens"
(TeachThought) "...written in the style of an old mix tape (OMG, miss those). Side A is all about life, love, death, hurt, endings, beginnings, family, relationships, and so much more. Side B takes readers on a different journey, utilizing blackout poetry to 'remix' the work Cook compiled on Side A. Pretty cool." (E. CE Miller, Bustle)
