Book Review for: You’re One of Them by Sayo Juba

When writing a book, a writer gets many words, spaces, paragraphs and pages to express their stories and be able to make an impact on their reader. But as poets, they get very limited words to express their true emotions. And to be able to punch a reader in the guts with a sorrow they never knew existed is a talent only a few very talented poets can achieve.

Today I can proudly say that I found one. Sayo Juba. You’re One of Them clicked my heart from the very first page, I felt happy, sad and angry at the world within a span of an hour and yet, I couldn’t have been happier with the book.

This short yet heart touching poetry book walked me through the random characters’ childhoods, their happiness, heart breaks, grief and their loss of a friend who no longer bothers to remember them.

This book gets a full 5/5 stars from me.
