What an amazing story, I can’t tell you how moving reading this book was. The stories really pulled you in and took you to the world and experiences that the author had. I liked that not only were there true stories that were great but the fictional parts felt as real as the memoir, it really hit’s home that this is a real person and had real experiences. I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys good writing and a really good memoir.
