I recommend this book to everyone and they all can't believe how much they enjoy it. When you first read the book synopsis on the back cover it sounds as if the story was pulled from one of those cheesy tv-movie-of-the-weeks. But Winik's story and the voice with which she tells it is so engaging and inspirational. Her words never reflect any kind of self-pity, as is often seen in many of the memoirs published recently. Instead her writing is wry, clever and very witty. This book will honestly make you laugh and cry. After reading this book you'll feel like Marion Winik is one of your close friends or wish she was.
