"Zuri McWhorter’s writing is like your everyday morning coffee, it goes smoothly down your soul, the taste of every rhythmic line leaving you gluttonous. And as you give into your glutton [and swipe through her Instagram] you start to see a painted picture form, twisting art into words. There’s a fresh edge to her prose, the thoughts of a [23-year-old] woman’s unapologetic views on love, experiences, and life."
