I really, really enjoyed this book. It's been on my shelf for a while and I was admittedly hesitant to start it because I wasn't sure about the format, but I ended up loving it. There are so many observations or stories that made me smile or laugh because they totally hit home. Despite not being chronological (well, except for the listing of events from her childhood), you still get a good sense of Amy's life, and the pieces (and people) that fit into it.

Jessica I'm so glad to read your review. I bought this book probably two years ago and I've yet to pick it up. Adding it to the to-read pile now.
