Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gabbie Hanna delivers everything from curious musings to gut-wrenching confessionals in her long-awaited sophomore collection of poetry. This edition includes a collection of uncomfortably honest personal essays about Gabbie’s childhood and relationships.

In this thrilling installment of the inner-workings of Gabbie’s mind, we’re taken on a journey of self-loathing, self-reflection, and ultimately, self-acceptance through deeply metaphorical imagery, chilling twists on child-like rhymes, and popular turns of phrase turned on their heads. Through raw, provocative tidbits, Dandelion explores what it means to struggle with a declining mental health in a world where mental health is both stigmatized and trivialized. 

The poems range from topics of rage and despair to downright silliness, so if you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, just laugh until you cry. 

Includes Gabbie Hanna’s single “Dandelion”, which was inspired by this book.

love this book!!

this book is the perfect mix of dark and light. deep and emotional topics broken up by humour and light. it brings to light some really important issues in such a beautifully written way. i’d recommend this book to anyone and everyone, even if you’re not a fan of poetry, it’s written in such a way that some poems are more short stories than poems. it’s so well-written. it broke my heart and then filled it right back up, i laughed, i cried and everything in between.

Tearjerker

I'm not going to lie, this book made me cry a lot. There was so much sad / dark stuff in this book that I struggled to finish it. However, I'm still glad that I read it, because it helped me understand the author a little more. I also hope that her stories can help other people that may have went through the same struggles as her. Also, I think the song at the end was a nice touch.

My new favorite book.

Thank you Gabbie Hanna for opening up inthis book you're self allowed vulnerability made me feel less alone, I have been struggling with recent trauma surrounding a toxic relationship that was violent and the trama of sexual assault and some of your chapters made me feel less alone. I relate to alot of the childhood trauma you experienced as well, thank you for being so open in this book.

Love love love

Absolutely LOVED IT!!! Everything overall has improved so much! Gabbie's reading was much better (in my opinion) because in her first book the reading felt rushed but this time it was well paced💜 the writing has much improved as well, I felt like I had a new favorite poem every minute💜

It’s much much much better than I expected!

I got the book with a bit lower expectations but I truly loved the book!! Gabbie got much deeper and more mature with her writings compared to her first book. This book is much deeper and more personal and genuine which is something I liked. I appreciate Gabbie for being transparent with her content as well as creative in this book, and left me wanting more!
Good job Gabbie Hanna!
