I'm glad I used my gift certificate to buy this book. I've started reading it as soon as I received the book from the mail, and found it really hard to put down.
I give I'm Nobody: My Mother Said It; I No Longer Believe It
a rating of 4.5/5. It's not one of my favourites, but I definitely really liked it. Simply because of how Erma's story drawn me in so easily.(view spoiler)[I'm Nobody: My Mother Said It; I No Longer Believe It is a very sad story of a woman who had pined for her abusive and neglectful mother's love since she was a toddler. Now, after all those decades, she had finally learned to let go of her mother.
Her childhood was terrible and full of betrayals. Erma grew up to be a lady who tried to fit it, but couldn't really do so, because she didn't know how to function well in society and all she ever knew was to hide herself behind masks upon masks. But she had painstickenly learned how to function in society, and is still learning. (hide spoiler)]
The writing itself might not be as refined as many other authors, but it is clearly a book written from Erma Steppe's heart. It isn't a story written for others. I believe that it's mainly written for self-discovery and to get it all off her chest and down on paper in black and white.
