Mom lit--insecure Sadie is feeling unneeded. Her dad is wild. Uplifting after the first couple of chapters.

Very cute! A quick, enjoyable read. Based on the summary and the cover image I was expecting a silly, very "haha cute" kind of story, and it was in places. But the book also had some serious spots, such as when Sadie is dealing with trying to cope with and understand the things about her past that are revealed.

This book was so good! Normally this company puts out inspirational romances, but this book was very different. Not really a romance at all, a woman similar in age to me gets answers to many of her questions about her past. The whole book is full of southern humor, which really interested me having so much family from the south.

If you think of everyone you meet as an uncertain, hurting individual, most of the time you'll be right. AND Stop waiting for your life to be perfect to do or ask for what you want.
I know I have heard these before but somehow, this book made me see them clearly, at least for a time. Thank you for that.

The strong points of this book were the quirky characters and the realistic feelings. Though it starts out a bit comedic, it winds up more serious and with a good message. Near the end I wiped away a few tears. Still, not exactly a favorite of mine.

A quick read and a discovery I could relate to health-wise for the main character. I liked the exploration of the family dynamics and how they evolved.
