    "Absorbing."

    I am curious about author's relationship with her mom. The previous book was a jaw dropper and this hinted at some later communication within Melissa's circle of friends. Is Melissa treating her mom with kid gloves in this book to maintain their separation? "Don't go away mad, just go away".

    "Good life lessons"

    I really appreciate Melissa's honesty and transparency. A great inspiration for all ages. My 17 yo DD said it was "very practical".

    "Disappointed"

    I really wanted to like it but I couldn't relate to the author. Preaching is different than sharing. I felt like I was being preached to by a former high school cheer leader who still felt she was better than everyone else. The snobbery bled through the well meaning stories.

    "A wonderful experience listening to Malissa!"

    I was completely taken with the privilege & pleasure of hearing Malissa Francis read her outstanding book. I highly recommend it to young adults trying to navigate the plethora of challenges and joys that life and love bring to each of us.

    "Evans Review"

    Melissa does a good job in relating the values of little house to her values in life. I have watched her on fox for a number of years now I have and understanding of watch you see is her not putting on for the camera.
