About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author captures the 70s and 80s - my 70s and 80s - so well. Love's Baby Soft, the Bee Gees, and the need of a teen to fit in. It's hard to fit in, though, when things are upside-down at home. The author's anger and hurt and shame are so evident; reading, I felt her pain. Her memories brought back some memories of my own, good and bad. While her alcoholic father features prominently in the story, this is also a story about working through the rough times that life throws at us, finding the strength we need to survive and thrive, and growing beyond the confines of our upbringing.

I read this book awhile back. But it is the kind of story you revisit in your mind long after you finish the last page. A beautiful book -- and an especially brave one.Published on January 28, 2014 by Courtney
