I can't say enough positive things about this book.
Cupcake Brown's story is one I'll never forget. It's hard-core honest. For me, the brutality was sometimes hard to listen to (I had to take a lot of breaks in the beginning). The things she went through, no child should ever have to endure.
I totally enjoyed her style of writing. Cupcake's sense of humor tickled me. As flawed and tragic as she was, many of her antics throughout the book made me scream with laughter. Redemption comes at the end, and I cried like a baby.
The narrator, Bahni Turpin, is very expressive and she did this story incredible justice. She performed it to a "T".
This book is well worth 2 credits and in fact, I'm going to purchase it in print.
If you like memoirs, and cussing doesn't offend you too much, this is a keeper.
Kristen's honesty and humor in telling a very dark and chilling tale.
I'd compare it to Tina Fey's 'Bossypants' because of the delight of hearing it read by the author in such a humorous, lively way. Also, 'A Piece of Cake' by Cupcake Brown because of the unflinching honesty.
Her describing a colostomy bag as 'something people wear when their butts fall off,' made me choke with laughter.
Yes! I listen while sewing, so I got a lot done.
Kristen, you're a trip. You're good at what you do. You deserve your success. Be well.
It's a really good contemporary story. The pain of losing one's childhood friends for whatever reason is very real. I played it while cleaning a room and the time went by quickly. I reccommend it.
