really liked it

I have never seen Carrie, Badlands, Coal Miner's Daughter, nor many of the films she references in this book, but I have always admired Sissy Spacek for her integrity and forthrightness. I loved her in The Help, and in Missing (which, if you haven't seen it, please do.) I like this autobiography because it shows a loving family growing up in a small town and doing ordinary things. There is no recovering drug addict storyline, no sexual exploits, just a level head and a powerful love, for family, for pets, for life. It is wonderful to see that someone this grounded can have so much success. I even loved the little drawings that were inserted into the book. Though a different time period, this almost reminded me of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House on the Prairie books, with some Hollywood names thrown in.
