Summary

In her first collection of poetry, Lili Reinhart explores the euphoric beginnings of young love, battling anxiety and depression in the face of fame, and the inevitable heartbreak that stems from passion. Relatable yet deeply intimate, provocative yet comforting, bite-size yet profound, these beautiful poems are about growing up, falling down and getting back up again.

They capture what it feels like to be a young woman in today’s image-obsessed world with Lili’s trademark honesty, optimism and unique perspective. The poems in Swimming Lessons reveal the depths of female experience and are the work of a storyteller who is coming into her own.
