Yes. This book brings you in and doesn't let go. It's a terrible train wreck that you can't help yourself from watching. But it is also a book of redemption. One of the most inspiring stories I've ever read.
The obstacles, one after another that she tackles and struggles with. It is amazing to see the strength of her spirit.
Absolutely. You cannot walk away from this!
This book was very long but worth every minute. It kept moving and at one moment I was sad about events to occurred and then a few minutes later I was laughing out loud! The author is a great storyteller and the narration put just the right amount of spin and attitude on everything. It was highly recommended to me and I'd highly recommend it to you!
One of the best books I have ever listened to. I would love to meet Cupcake some day. This story proves that anyone can do anything,no matter the circumstances, if they put their mind to it and their faith in God!
When I first began listening to the book, I was hooked. Then, there was a time period from about ages 11-14 that I could barely listen to. I was like, "I can't." Then, I thought "Hey, this HAS to get better. This is a memoir! Plus, joy Cometh forth in the morning." So, I hung in there! It was WELL worth it! I KNOW I'll listen to this book SEVERAL more times. I've NEVER--in almost 20 years of listening to audiobooks, bookmarked so many things in 1 book! It's now one of my FAVORITE books despite the frequent cursing.
I truly loved Cupcake's story. . I felt so many emotions reading this book I was in shock, felt sorrow, felt a little like a gangsta (lol) and felt inspired. Cupcake dedicates her story to the many angels that crossed her path. .but she never gave up. kudos to her. .Amazing narrator, she truly brought Cupcake's story to to a true reality for me. ..
The story is compelling, well written, and the author very easy to get attached to!
Bahni acts out the story. She's probably the best reader I've experienced on Audible. It was like listening to girlfriend telling me about her life story over coffee.
I highly recommend it!
The realization of life in the streets and foster homes of the U. S. ...whether completely accurate or dramatized is raw and eye opening. An amazing strife for love and acceptance, the uphill battle of addiction, and the rigors of education and family. A definite score for educating even the most difficult toward a better tomorrow.
I really enjoyed this book. The story was interesting and the reading was well done. Cupcake lived an incredible life. It's fascinating to hear all she went through and her perspective on it looking back.
"Listening to Ms. Brown's story filled me with sadness, anger, encouragement, onspiration, and pride. I value her journey to self"
Cupcake Brown is a genuine lady who has earned the title in every sense of the word. Her story and truths leave me speechless in my admiration. The character and courage that she exudes is truly awr-inspiring. Kudos to Cupcake Brown, Esquire!!!
I luv this narrator, but not even she could help me to like the story. I just thought it took too long to get to the point.
