Q: My 14 year old granddaughter wants this book, and I hear it was a very popular seller with the teenage girl market. Is it suitable for this age group

submitted by YaYa - 6 years ago
  • A: The book you are talking about is milk and vine a sort of parody of milk and honey. Milk and honey is a book with poetry. Milk and vine is quotes from the dead app called “vine”

    submitted byServing tea - 6 years ago
  • A: As this book is very truthful, the nature of this book is for more teenage kids. i believe if she is mature enough for this book. i would say yes, even if she isnt fully, still yes because it has wise words and nice advice she can use.

    submitted byj - 6 years ago
  • A: It's a book quoting short videos called Vines. I have the book myself, however, I have heard that it does have Vines in the book. Most will have swearing in the quotes. If your granddaughter if responsible and mature then I would recommend it.

Christmas gift for my wife!

4 out of 5 stars
Alec - 3 months ago
I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife, they’re been after this book for a while, just never pulled the trigger on it. So, I decided to grab it while Christmas shopping, so I could wrap it under the tree! I’m sure they will love it, but I can’t say for sure at the moment since it’s not Christmas yet! But, as another review stated, the 20% off sticker Target stuck to the front of the book was uncalled for. It was almost impossible to get off without ruining the book cover, somehow I managed but it took longer than it should’ve! There’s no reason to put that sticker on the book, there has to be another option for letting buyers know it’s 20% off. Or, maybe find another sticker type that might be safer on a book that’s easier to remove. Anyways, my wife really enjoys poetry so here’s to hoping this book is a hit!

I think this book is little overhyped, but it does look cute as a decor piece since it is black and white so I will hang onto it for awhile.

AA - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I really disliked this book. Some of the poems had potential, but others had issues, like being too simplistic (just 7 words on an entire page) or an annoying, stream of consciousness jumble of text. I also disliked the content. It's very explicit in ways that I can't write out without Target telling me to remove "profanity" from my review. I disliked this, and I think it could also be triggering to many people to have some of the content mentioned in the the way that it is. It is also a very short book, especially since there's so much white space. You could probably read the entire book within 30–60 minutes.

I loved this book, I actually just finished it a second ago. I recommend this book for 16+ as it does have sensitive subjects, make sure you do some reading a bit before buying so this doesn’t make you uncomfortable.

Rupi speaks to my soul! Their use of language, organic streams of thought, and inclusivity in approach to grammar and structure is a 10/10! I highly recommend this to everyone!

samantha - 3 years ago
this is a terrible representation of poetry. i understand the power that writing has towards trauma healing…but this was a slap in the face for someone who has experienced SA. my experience is not an aesthetic. there is absolutely no talent in this writing. you are left empty with no thought or emotion to ponder. don’t waste your time (like 30 min max to finish this terrible excuse for poetry/writing) or money.

giana chalamet - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
I love this book, and it came quickly and it nice condition, and actually at a much cheaper price compared to other sites where I'd check this book out. BUT! The target sticker would not budge, which made me super upset because this book is beautiful both inside AND out, and the sticker had ruined the cover. Luckily overtime I found an alcohol prepping pad wipe, and it removed the sticky residue and what was left of the sticker easily!
