While this is not a book I would have picked up on my own, I'm really glad my book club decided to read it. The beginning was a little hard for me to get into, mainly because I was having a difficult time reading in the dialect; however, as the story progressed I found myself unable to put it down. I was struck with both admiration for Stacyann's perseverance as well as horror for the way people in her life treated her. I found myself drawn to seek out videos of her performance art and was pleasantly surprised to see she starred in Across the Universe. I will be recommending this to my friends.
