Dating Down Flux
Dating Down is for people who understands how to become a teenager, for people who has been confused about love and still figuring it out. Dating Down by Stefanie Lyons. As moody and vivid as it is captivating, Dating Down is told in scenes and bursts of poetry that create a story filled with hurt, healing, and hope. It was evident that everything will come crashing down soon enough and while everything was expected, I give props to Stefanie Lyons to keeping up the ante and making us feel for Sam.
Dating Down chronicles her crush on X, the hipster-boho college-aged barista on the coffee shop she frequents, and their imminent relationship. Writing poetry leaves me with a huge sense of assuagement, but reading somebody else's work in itself is equally as gratifying. The writing is so relatable and fluid.
