This book was a page turner, written engagingly and very boldly. The stories shared by the author were gritty and usually perplexing--how is it that people who love us sometimes treat us so dreadfully?

McCurdy grew up trying to please her mother; every tragic tale stemmed from this simple fact. Writing this book must have been excruciating as well as cathartic; surely it took brutal strength on her part to reveal these stories so starkly. Every few chapters I literally looked upwards to heaven and thanked my lucky stars for the mother and sweet childhood I was blessed to be given.

Memoirs are my absolute favorite things to read. This one is near the top of my all-time list.

***** Five stars!
