All I can say is WOW so far. It is gripping! This poor girl (right now she's still a girl... I didn't get too far last night before the ol' Ambien kicked in). But wow, Ms. Brown can really craft a story and I just feel so badly for what she had to go through (and what I am assuming is coming as well...)

I absolutely loved it. It's one of the few times I've wanted to write an author and tell her how amazing her story was. So yes, put it on your WL and get it!

One of my all-time favorite memoirs.  I actually emailed her to tell her so and I got a lovely response.

I almost finished with this and it's very compeling. I have to say I don't believe it's 100% truthful. I've found some obvious contradictions in her story. That ruins it for me. I did a google search and found articles that compared her to James Frey (A Million LIttle Pieces).
