really liked it

Her first effort as a writer, and maybe it shows, but it gives a very good look at what it feels like to grow up "different" in an environment where "different" is taken to mean "wrong". I very much enjoyed following her steps through that journey and was sorry when the book came to an end So many autobiographies come off as "but I was surrounded by idiots" but Chely doesn't pull any punches about her own faults and mistakes along the way. That kind of honesty is what makes the book work.

I felt like the book needs an epilogue. Publishing the book was Chely's way of coming out to the world, so that's where the story stops. I would love to read a few chapters about what the next year or so of her life was like.
