Recommended for: everybody no matter what style you like

I was having a little trouble in subjects of reading and writing, and my dad told me I could only fix the problem by reading what others had dedicated their lives to after taking the journey I was about to take. I know this sounds extremely dorky, but it's the true story and it's why I jioned this website, to tell people about the books they know nothing aboutand I know plenty about. So, anyway, I was looking in the library for a subject that I, at least, would enjoy. And of course that meant..........acting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I looked in the young adults section to find something about acting and that was at my age level, and just as I entered the isle, it jumped out at me. My Life as a Doormat(IN THREE ACTS)those three words just told me that was the book I was looking for. It also had that look to it as if it was about somebody who wanted to complain about their life through a character they thought fit the tale perfectly. That's exactly what I would have done for my first few books if I were an author. It improved my writing page by page listening to this women tell me her exceedingly embarrassing life. I started to write poems about things I had never experienced or felt in my life and people thought they couldn't have written it better, they also said one more thing, each and every one of them, how can you write so well and so much about something or someone you know so little about. I had finally put my creativity and writing passion to good use. I admire the author of this book so much I really sugest you read it. It's funny, it's sad, it's surprising, and just a tiny bit cliche, but that's , that's what made it for me,that's what gave me my ability to express myself in the only passionate, incredible, amazing, craziest way ever. Writing. My name name is Natalie Cidon and I write poems, but only because of this fantastic book.
