In this chapbook, Isabelle Kenyon navigates the grey space between child and adult. From the playground wars with worms, to the value of a woman’s body as she learns to take up her own space, this collection values kindness in an increasingly cruel society.



"Spartan of both language and spirit, Isabelle Kenyon's uncompromising Growing Pains sifts and measures the weight of the human soul. In this unflinching and incisive commute from schoolyard savagery through toxic masculinity and calculating a woman's worth, to grief and dislocation, Kenyon divines humanity's salvation in passing acts of kindness."
