Interesting story of a young girl's adjustment to her family's split and the subsequent addition of a new stepfather. ( )

Needs to be much more tightly written. ( )

An interesting read on a young woman's journey through childhood. I definitely felt for the little girl as she grew up with all the chaos that was in her family and was happy to see her overcome it all.

I think this will be popular with teens - they will certainly be able to relate to the main character's feelings, if not her situation. Though hard to read at times because of the content, I enjoyed reading this book and am especially happy that the epilogue was so positive. ( )

This was an interesting read. The author uses a convoluted timeline which makes the story seem disjointed at times but it doesn't take too much away from her story. It does seem like a tragic tale but it's also one of redemption to see how she used the dramatic childhood as a healing tool in her work later on. I was hoping for more on the Mormon aspect of life (although she does go into a decent amount) and how she feels about it presently but I can also understand why that was left out of focus towards the "ending" and epilogue.

Either way- it was an interesting read and though parts made me cringe and the authors voice was left with a childlike structure (understandably since she was going back to her younger years) I would recommend to those who enjoy autobiographical memoirs with less than pleasant religious overtones. I am happy she overcame her past - or least appears to have overcome it. ( )
