Top Customer Reviews
Zamarron's honesty in detailing her difficult past is, at times, shocking. More shocking, however, is her ability to forgive those who couldn't or didn't help her, including her family. Her focus, her dedication, her humanity are all inspiring.
At times, this was a tough book to keep reading, but the opening chapter, which shares her triumph to achieve a world title, reminds you that this is a story of redemption.
