    "Bad Ass Poetry" Bad Ass Poetry is an extraordinary piece of work! Ms. Charles takes her inspiration from many sources including her personal history, the history of her people and culture, her love of NY, literary inspirations, and life experiences. She not only portrays of her Haitian heritage and the black experience in America beautifully, but she speaks of the Human Experience and the on goings of everyday life both the joys and the pains. What is most impressive about her work is her ability to convey emotion. When you are reading one of her poems you will be surprised at how easily you can find a connection with the poem, even if it is something you never experience, heard of, or seen before. This emotional connection is intriguing and takes you through the book from beginning to end. By the time you reach the end of the book, you will be wondering when the next book is coming out. I give this book Two Dumbs Up, Five Stars, and a Perfect 10!

    "BAAD ASS POETRY " BAAD ASS POETRY is indeed the right title for this poetry book! With ease, the author Castina Charles delivers a powerful, thought provoking set of poems about various topics: love, identity, religion, Africa, race, Haiti ect.... as I turned to page 10, I was already hooked. My spirit was planted and I felt hypnotize by her imaginative way of expression. I love her love affair with poetry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for raw, uncooked consciousness ~fania Simon, Author of Poetry in Haiti & Sofi's Load

    " “…Passionate and powerful.” " "Baad Ass Poetry is bold, spirited and cleverly written." "This prose is passionate and powerful. Embodied with words that informs, uplifts and inspires reflection." "A collection of poetry, that varies in subject matter. Often times delivered with words that are absolutely gritty. Although there are incidences where the wording is soft with emotion. Composed with words that are definitely heard." "Castina Charles is a budding poetess on the rise."
