Collection of poems by Lauren Scharhag, written from 2004-2013, exploring themes of womanhood, family, and her German-Mexican heritage.

Patrick Roberts

I just finished reading "West Side Girl" and was glad I picked it up. Lauren Scharhag, takes one into a world not of just beauty but reality, and fantasy. Speaking of the dead, the hearth, and her own frailties. Her way with words and presentation, especially with the emersion in her Mexican culture, she is nothing short of a modern Frida Kahlo for poetry. If you wish to read book of poetry that will rip your soul out and then let's you gaze in awe at the myriad of colors and spices that it holds this would be that book.
