I have become very close to the author and victim in this story. She was there for me once I discovered the man I was married to is a pathological liar and possible sociopath. Paula Carrasquillo also has a blog, that I encourage all to visit. http://paularenee.wordpress.com/

I felt that this book was too emotional to be very informative. The writing style was interesting, but I didn't particularly care for it. It seemed very unorganized and even immature. However, I can relate to some of the stories, and it was a good wake-up call. Props to the writer for being brave enough to get her story out there as a warning, but I would have liked to see something more... intellectual. This seemed more like a storm of emotion mixed with a tale.

A native of Maryland, Paula grew up in traditional, small-town Appalachia surrounded by coal mines and paper mills. From chasing lightning bugs to playing in the woods, Paula's childhood primed her for a writing career filled with great expectations and an overabundance of irony and laughter.
