Read from August 06 to 08, 2012

I love her honesty. Aside from her narrative on finding oneself, one's home, and one's mother, I really appreciated her views on religion, working class life, literacy amongst the working class. All very fascinating. Her journey though, is amazing, one of acceptance of self, survival, and love. Despite all her hardships she hangs on. Brilliant chapter on Madness and working through it.
