Abstract

A Bad Girl’s Guide to Love and Adulthood is a collection of poems spanning the life of the speaker as she bumbles through a rough childhood, a string of lousy relationships, and ultimately, finding love. Moving chronologically through time, the speaker’s growth and development is reflected in popular culture figures, such as David Bowie and Kim Kardashian, as well as television shows and music.
