Words are inadequate to express how powerful and affecting this memoir is. It is intensely personal, but not in a self-dramatizing way. She shares her story, warts and all, in a way that says, "Here baby, see what life can throw at you just so you can learn who you really are."
As you move through the chapters you can't help but identify with its humanity, its pain, and its triumph. You don't want to put the book down. If you are bogged down in the feeling-sorry-for-myself blues, this is a great antidote, or if you just want a great and uplifting (but keep the tissues handy) read, get this book.
