This book was absolutely amazing, I was so compelled by this book and the story line. I loved all of the members of the family and I could not put this book down!
Incredible story of coping, family dynamics and imagination.
Jeannette's reading of her story made it feel like she was in your living room telling you her story over coffee or drinks.
Well written and read by the author. A definite "page turner".
The story was just a life story, no real substance or meaning. Though I'm sure the cussing and sexual parts had to be told, this type of book isn't for me. Lots of facts without depth of feeling
My son was given this book for his summer reading list from his teacher. We purchased it for our road trip & it was not only wonderful to listen to but it brought our attention together, which as a mother I really enjoyed. The story also made ME feel like I was a pretty darn good mum :-)
This was an interesting story with a great narration. It was a very intriguing and captivating story to listen to while simultaneously being productive. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in well written memoirs.
This was an incredible story! I admire the drive and persistence of the author and her siblings. They were truly blessed with spirit and fortitude to overcome. Read this book and appreciate what you have
Dark but tender read . You will have compassion for children growing up in such chaos And compassion for the parents who's madness and different mind set drives the story
