Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

Perfectly Imperfect by Amber Whitted is the third volume in a series composed of her words and thoughts about a variety of topics. To be honest, I have not read the first two volumes. I had not heard of her until I decided to read this book. I usually prefer prose. But it is a testament to the power of her words that I plan to go back and read those first two volumes. Perfectly Imperfect moved me and that’s what I want any book to do. I am not an avid reader of poetry, but I respect the power of words in the hands of a master. Amber Whitted is a master and I am a new fan. I think you will be too. Her thoughts flow but she adds enough structure so that there is no doubt as to her themes and the meaning she is trying to convey.

I really enjoyed Perfectly Imperfect and I am very pleased to discover Amber Whitted. I related to the subjects she chose to expound upon in this volume. My personal favorites are Identity, The Heart Knows Why, and the poem for which the volume is named, Perfectly Imperfect. This theme has resonated with me my whole life and it was a pleasure to hear Amber’s thoughts on the subject. Her voice is strong. Her message is clear, but more importantly, what she commits to paper is authentic. I strongly suggest that you try her work. Find a quiet place and read a few of her poems. You will not regret it.
