Ry Reed, author
Ry Reed’s PINK GRAPEFRUIT is her first of many poetry books referencing her life. Powerful, endearing, facing the woman in the mirror, and her broken heart, PINK GRAPEFRUIT takes you on a journey divided between four seasons in her life where love, loss, heartbreak, and recovery are at the root of her poems. Her take on how to move forward are very real and empowering for women still in toxic relationships or survivors. The last half of PINK GRAPEFRUIT has been split into a short story about our heroine Faith Peaches Manderlin, a mistreated sixth grader dealing with adversities like self-esteem, body acceptance, friendships, and finding young love. Nine chapters of comedy and endurance will have you cheering for the wonderfully optimistic Faith Peaches until the very end.
