Rita's life and what she's been through is very unique and the majority of people, obviously, are not kids of mafia leaders. But still, I could still relate to and apply her story and struggles to the specifics in my own life and I think most people would be able to do this as well.
I love how she never gave up to try and be herself, even though all the odds--her family, her religion, her father's world, society--were against her. And those are big things to fight.
I also love how she questions the format and understandings of organized religion and suggests a more "inclusive" God who doesn't send people to hell for how He/She made them and wants us all to feel and find and experience love. Many narrow-minded people might learn this from Rita's book if they could just open their eyes.
When I finished the book, I came away from it feeling like anything is possible.
the mafia and what went on in the 1960s and 70s, don't get this book. It should have been named, "my life as a gay mafia daughter".
So proud and honored to be your friend!
