"Kelly says clearly hat many of us are afraid to say. There is a wide range of approaches in her poems, from the most biting humor, to direct testimony of unbearable events, to the quiet but powerful evocation of the brutal childhood faced by so many, to insistent monologues which anyone who is poor, female, and/or a person of color has heard echoing in their heads. She both records the ugliness and begins to construct a way out of it,. What emerges is one of the stories which must be heard, the story of the development of anger, strength, vision and compassion, in one of the daughters of a society which tries to destroy the clear word and those who carry it." -- Anya Achtenberg, author, I Know What the Small Girl Knew
