I really did not like the writing style of this book. It's like what you would see in an essay with a lot of "futhermore" and "however" and blatant explanations of what each experience taught her. Another autobiography I've seen this in is Misty May's Digging Deep in Volleyball and Life. I just don't like this style of writing at all. I prefer more subtlety and structure that is more like that of a story than that of a series of academic essays.
