In her first collection of poetry, Jewel deals with such uniquely human themes as first love, the fading of passion, the giving of trust, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. The Alaska native writes with frankness and honesty. She is serious and suddenly playful, but always compelling. Download and start listening now!

    " Do. Not. Laugh. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim W | 2/7/2014

    " Thought it was amazing and deep. When I was in grade 9. Pathetic drivel. It's really too bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 whichwaydidshego? | 2/5/2014

    " There are some gems of expression and emotion in this volume, and a few truly deep and remarkable finds. However, for the most part it's an awful lot about love and sex which becomes rather redundant at times in theme as well as in the ideas/thoughts behind these themes. The best ones are about family, loneliness, Alaska, and most of all nature in relation to the divine. In other words, she's no Neruda, but does have a voice worth listening to now and then. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosalie | 2/4/2014

    " I read this at age 18 and back then it seemed a lot deeper. Going back to it now, I can see that I just didn't have much basis for comparison. I'm still glad I read it, because it did introduce me to written poetry--strangely, I purchased an e.e. cummings book of poetry right after I read this the first time. We all need a "gateway drug" into poetry, I guess. This was mine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thalia | 1/31/2014

    " Some poems are cute, but all in all it's really not that good. I prefer her music. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mamers | 1/30/2014

    " I put this on the "10 year old me" shelf, but really, I was 18. I LOVE this book. A couple of the poems are so-so, but some of them resonated so deeply with me that I will never forget them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 1/23/2014

    " I love this book of poetry which I first found at a used book store on cd. The poems are beautiful and powerfully moving, and they are made even more so when they are read by Jewel on the audio book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brittany | 1/16/2014

    " Sadly, this book contained only a small handful of good poems. A lot of it was rather poor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmine | 1/14/2014

    " I liked this book as a teenager. I think it is good for people of that age. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gian Paulo | 1/3/2014

    " PEACEFUL. QUIET. REFRESHING. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 12/27/2013

    " Poetry that is readable and honest. Some are beautiful, some are story-like, some are political. I enjoyed this collection, and will revisit the poems again in the future. Jewel is an exceptional artist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shanali | 12/14/2013

    " This Alaskan folk turn country singer has not only written some of my favorite lyrics but also some of my favorite verses. Beautiful Read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 12/13/2013

    " I like her poetry more than her music. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess Farrar | 12/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed this when I first read it in high school. At that age, it was a great introduction to freestyle poetry that I could relate to. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda J | 11/11/2013

    " As a fan of Jewel's music, I was surprisingly disappointed with this book of poems. The same ten words keep reappearing in poem after poem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami | 10/25/2013

    " some of the poems were abosolutely amazing, i have gone back to read 5-10 of them over again. i may return to reading other poems or books she may have written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzie | 9/10/2013

    " Eh....goldfish in bellies....I dunno ab out this one guys... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 5/24/2013

    " I liked it. Written or rather published back in 1998, much has happened in the world, and in Jewel's life since then...I bet she has continued to write poetry. I wonder if she will ever have it published someday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martine | 1/7/2013

    " Inspirational! Moving! Honest! I have rediscovered my love of poetry, a passion that for too long now has lain dormant. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren Houston | 10/11/2012

    " A friend gave me this book for a birthday gift. We played guitar together, she was teaching me how to play and she only played Jewel songs. She was obsessed. Well, I hated the book. I never told her though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shel Atkins | 5/9/2012

    " I learned that poetry doesn't fit neatly into the box that my college poetry professor would have had me believe. Jewel really blurs the line between poetry and song. If there ever was a line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 4/7/2012

    " I read this (and loved it!) in high school and am curious what I would think if I re-read it now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 8/18/2011

    " My all-time favorite book of serious poetry. It doesn't quite top Shel Silverstein on the all-time list. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chole Allyson | 5/18/2011

    " I have been a fan of Jewel's for a very long time. I enjoyed reading her poems and looking at pictures of her. She is a very inspirational person to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayna | 5/14/2011

    " She is an incredible writer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 4/19/2011

    " Poetry that is readable and honest. Some are beautiful, some are story-like, some are political. I enjoyed this collection, and will revisit the poems again in the future. Jewel is an exceptional artist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Samantha | 3/21/2011

    " I thought the poetry was okay when I had originally read it around the age of 14. I'm not even sure I'd actually call it poetry now. They're really more like random observations excerpted from one of her journals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 3/13/2011

    " Loved this book of poetry! Highly recommended. The perfect bedtime read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jack | 3/11/2011

    " I picked this up at my Library book sale attracted by the name.A pretty poetic name but not a poet.
    I really really like poetry alas not Jewel Kicher's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 11/29/2010

    " This book inspired me to publish my own book of poetry! Kudos!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 7/12/2010

    " I love how simple but deep Jewel's poetry is. I love her music, so it's no surprise that I love her poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kyersten | 6/6/2010

    " I like Jewel, so what can I say? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Greg | 3/27/2010

    " If she were not a celebrity this would not even make it to a slush pile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leonard | 3/27/2010

    " Her shorter poems seem to have more punch than the longer ones. Better than I expected. "
