"Water Lilies" is a poetry book written by Jacqueline Ann, a poet from Long Island, New York. In her poetry book, she covers many topics that many people can relate to, like relationships, religion, heartbreak, etc. It's such an authentic raw, and real way to look at life. Her goal for this book is for young men and women to read and understand the important messages behind each poem that she's is trying to convey.

Jacqueline's way with words and putting them together to make beautiful sentences is truly amazing and she is a true talent that everyone should know about. Her book can be compared to Rupi Kaur's poetry and I forsee Jacqueline's career gaining traction by her honesty, talent, and realness.
