I love the little "punch lines" at the end of each chapter, keeping the mood light while stepping through the complicated maze of emotional recovery. You wouldn't expect a book about someone's recovery from such horrific abuse to stay so lighthearted, or for it to be a somewhat fun read, but this book makes you want to keep turning pages and see what happens next.
My one bit of advice for people who plan to read this book is to give yourself a good chunk of time when you sit down to read it, because I found that it was easier for me to get absorbed and jump back in if I set aside an hour to read and then reflect.
Overall an incredible book written by an even more incredible woman. A must-read for those constantly seeking to improve themselves and their mindsets, as well as expand their understanding and empathy.
