I would not be lying if I say I devoured this book in just one sitting only. Sijdah beautifully described those emotions and feelings from which one go through in their dark times. The main theme of this book is healing. You can only heal when you allow yourself to be.

It has a message that respect yourself, do not let anyone ruin you and your feelings. Do not hide your emotions and live your life as you want. Red Sugar No More is definitely a must-read.

This book is a power house of all emotions and feelings we, as human beings, come across. Sijdah puts so rightly “Healing is Messy, but necessary”. All you have to do is try and try hard.

The poems are more like songs lyrics and while reading them, they kinda flow on your tongue like a song. So, I was kinda singing most of these like a song in my mind. Overall, the book has a touch of warmth as it deals with issues that are quite relatable.

This book is an aftereffect of writer’s pain & travails (in a positive way). The flow of words seems like River Kunhar’s gush which has gigantic chunks of oppressive rocks that produce roar with water. If you are feeling broken & shattered then this book is for you to heal and regain your power.
