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.

A Breath of Air

Much like her brilliant Ted Talk Lili Reinhart certainly does not shy away from the brutal and beautifully honest. In Swimming Lessons we are familiarized by the feelings of grief, sadness, loss. However most importantly we are brought along to how it feels like to have depression in the midst of a passionate and all consuming relationship. To feel anxiety and frustration thatfeels stronger. Lili’s poetry is about taking control of your life and pulling yourself away from toxicity. If you are looking for a quick read, to branch out towards something you don’t normally read or even just a brief pause to reflect upon life this is super easy read. Very good.

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.
