I was looking forward to reading this book. I was disappointed. I may have missed it but I did not find the humor that the reviewers found. I thought that the life that the author was raised in was sad and at times disgusting. I found myself wondering where the authorities were while all of these children were being tossed about and neglected and abused. I finished it so as to see how the author made it out. The ending was a let down as the "getting out" of the life was glazed over rather quickly.
