Caitlin put into words perfectly the ups and downs of life, love and one's self. The more and more I read the book I can feel the struggles that she went through in her search for self-worth and self-love and the perfect relationship. The book hits home! Relating to her story was easy due to the way it was written and laid out. While reading her words, it almost feels like her voice is telling you the story and you are just listening. There are so many parts that made me tear up and some that made laugh due to her wit and her humorous sarcasm which I loved. The book was a wonderful enlightening story that helps you see that all life's struggles do eventually work out and that no matter how dark life may seem at the moment, there is a light at the end of the tunnel that is filled with joy and unconditional love. I am happy that she found the love of her life and she is living the life that she thought would only be a dream, but all her work and self-discovery made her dreams come true. The book was just what I needed to read and I feel everyone should read Lightning in my Wires.

Most of the books I've read tell of experience I will not or at least hope never to experience i.e. war, crimes, exotic lifestyles etc. Books, newspapers, magazines and the web are full of stories of the exceptionally gifted or the exceptionally damaged (criminal, sick etc.).

Lightning In my Wires delves into the world of an upper middle class young woman who clearly is 'normal' or 'above average' and thus is/was very much a part of the world I live in but had no real understanding for.

As a parent I hope that reading this book may help me to better know what perhaps my daughter could experience as she moves towards and into adulthood. I will urge my daughter to read the book to know, if she is having similar experiences, she isn't alone or at the least so she may better support her friends that are. I will urge my son to read the book to understand what may be going on in the brain of his classmates / colleagues and better understand how his actions may impact others in ways that he could never guess.

If you come from or associate with women who grew up in middle class / upper middle class America , reading Lightning in my Wires is like having the ability to look into the brain of these friends and colleagues as they enjoyed, suffered and experienced what we label generically as love.

Let me start by saying I have met Caitlin a few times and NEVER would have guessed this was her life story. I grabbed her book during a free session on a Saturday afternoon thinking I'd have something to read for the following week. I was wrong, I read the entire book that day!! The only time I out it down was to get food! Her story is amazing and she is such a great writer! I hope to again run into her so I can express in person how wonderful she is! She has overcome so much in her life. Thank you Caitlin for sharing your life with us.

You know how you get this sad feeling when a book you're really loving comes to an end? That's what happened to me with this one. I came across this book when I was looking for a great summer beach read...and as soon as I got into it (within just a few pages), I could. not. put. it. down!!! I basically ignored everyone around me until I devoured every single page. The story is uplifting and empowering (without being too rah-rah women's lib, which is my complaint about a lot of female-protagonist books I've read lately), and really tells the tale of struggle and triumph that so many women go through seemingly alone. The author gives a clear voice to these issues, while adding in humor and poignancy that make for a truly satisfying read. I enjoyed it so much that I'm really hoping she's written other books. (I've also lent my copy to a friend, who's loving it as much as I did!)

Caitlin Avery's story had me hooked immediately. She deals with many challenges in her life: mother and boyfriend issues, personal loss, and the inevitability of growing older with the proper amount of cynicism and bitterness, fighting but eventually finding peace and acceptance (enlightenment?). It was just what I needed to read after losing the job I'd had for five years, which I loved and assumed I'd have until I retired, or more likely died at my desk. I'd often stop reading to highlight phrases that rang true in my own life. For me, the book was therapeutic. It left me inspired, liberated, and feeling (like the author) that I was going to be OK too!

Not all voyages of discovery must involve physical luggage, planes, trains, and a passport. If you are burdened with a load of guilt and self-hatred, your best destination is yourself. It worked for Caitlin Avery and in this book she tells you how she conquered her demons and found a lasting love. Read and learn how to love yourself and make others love you. This author has the talent for becoming a big name.

I always love reading about peoples true life stories. When I stumbled on Lightning in my wires I was excited to start reading it. Even more exciting I had just got a smartphone with a kindle so I was able to read between clients and when I was waiting in any line I happen to be in that week. For me it brought tears to my eyes even though certain things she had gone through were different versions of what I might had been through... our feelings felt similar and she expressed them vividly. Life is full of unexpected curveballs and its always uplifting to know you can fall down and get back up again ...and life can be even better! I loved the book so I bought one for my mom for the holidays so we could discuss and have our own little book club over the phone!
