Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author

The debut collection of poetry from Lili Reinhart, the actress and outspoken advocate for mental health awareness and body positivity.

I seem to be your new favorite novel.
One that keeps you up at night,
turning my pages.
Fingers lingering on me so you don’t lose your place.

Swimming Lessons explores the euphoric beginnings of young love, battling anxiety and depression in the face of fame, and the inevitable heartbreak that stems from passion. Relatable yet deeply intimate, provocative yet comforting, bite-sized yet profound, Lili's poems reflect her trademark honesty and unique perspective. Swimming Lessons reveals the depths of female experience, and is the work of a storyteller who is coming into her own.

Lili is honest and bare

Lili’s voice is poignant, as soft as it is brutal just as her writing is. She expresses with such intensity her experience with love, loss, heartache and their many facets. In her recounting of her memories, sometimes she speaks with fondness of certain moments other times she speaks with scorn and anger at her beloved even speaking of a need for vengeance, retaliation. It is easy to relate to the variety of these feelings when in love and then betrayed. Beautiful writing, beautifully narrated, your voice is so beautiful, rich, raw, brutal, honest and calm. Lili, have faith in yourself, your voice, your courage and strength. I see you, I see it and you’re fierce girl even in your vulnerability. I see you

A Joy to listen to

this collection of poetry is made especially wonderful because it is read by the author and I think that adds an extra level of depth and intamicy to each piece. however it does not feel like a cohesive ark to me. while most of the poems could stand alone it feels like so much thought has been given to the story and the story is missing something. I will absolutely be listening again though and I'm thrilled to have this in my collection.

Sincere and simple

Every word was beautifully said. I sincerely hope there was closure with every word said. It was personal and heartfelt and I would hear this a million times over.

lovely 💐

I really enjoyed this book, having her read her own work with the emotion of every poem was wonderful. I strongly recommend to anyone who has dealt with anxiety, heartbreak and finding your love, even if if they don't end up being the one, but instead being the one who got away.

anyone who has dealt with the anxiety that comes with being cheated on or in a one sided relationship, should listen or read this book.

everything about this was touching and cathartic in many ways.

ENJOY!!!
