Angel in Red by Jacklyn Mcqueen is a relatable poetry book describing the complexity of relationships in early adulthood, that can become toxic without recognition. Told in 4 sections: Angel in Red, With Him, Without Him, and Acceptance, the author uses her personal lessons to show how being so hurt, can damage a person. Each poem shows vulnerability and makes connections with the reader, exploring how the theme of heartbreak is too common and too powerful to pretend does not exist.
Everyone makes mistakes; no one is perfect. No one is a clear devil or angel, everyone has good and bad in them. Do not blame yourself for mistakes of the past--learn and grow from them. Treat people better than they treat you. Everyone is a little bruised, but do not let pain keep you from happiness. Spread your wings and be a realistic angel--an angel in red.
