Growing up is tough. There is no guide to dealing with the anxiety, heartbreak, and depression that often accompanies adolescence. Someone Else in the Dark is a poetry collection that doesn’t shy away from the rough parts of growing up. It embraces them. 


Divided into five sections, each exploring a different facet of her growth, Freeman shows readers that the only way to overcome adolescence is by going through it. With a deep dive into her early childhood and teenage years, she explores the themes of love, young womanhood, race, and the need to fit in.


No stranger to the craft of writing, sixteen-year-old Freeman is able to inspire readers with the same assured storytelling that earned her debut novel a nod in both Publisher’s Weekly and People Magazine. With her introspective and heartfelt words, Freeman takes us on a poignant journey through her own coming of age.
