What the Moon Gave Her

From loneliness, fear, and uncertainty comes a dynamic collection of poetry that holds the power to inspire and unite us during a time when we couldn't feel farther apart.

What the Moon Gave Her is a poetry collection inspired by the unexpected journey of self-discovery during the COVID-19 pandemic. Model, actress, and TikTok poet Christi Steyn delves into topics like feeling stagnant, self-doubt, anxiety, and the unprecedented loss she and nearly every person on Earth experienced during the height of quarantine. Inspiration is found in every corner of this book's six chapters––"Self Reflection Gone Wrong," "New York State of "please rewind I don't want to be here anymore,"" "In Another Universe," "Love in A Bubble," "Quarantine," and "Finding Sunlight." Read Isolation Thoughts and be met with comforting, relatable, and timely words.
