Read from April 27 to May 01, 2012

What makes this story so remarkable is that it's a memoir. Despite the challenges Jeannette and her sibling experienced, 3 out of 4 kids seemed to triumph and lead normal lives. Chapters are short which keep the pace moving. This book is constantly pulling at your heart strings and no matter how messed up your family was, you'll be relieved that this wasn't your family. It's almost chilling in certain parts. Well written. Clearly a gifted author. Can't wait to start her other novel.
