really liked it

I really loved this book. I'd read Augusten Burroughs' Running with Scissors (thought it had to be a very exaggerated story in some parts) and Dry (which I thought was the best 'hitting bottom and recovering' book I've ever read) as well as John Robison's Look Me in the Eye (super helpful in giving insight about Asperger's). Like both of her sons, Margaret Robison is a compelling writer. I stayed up all night reading this. Ms. Robison spoke honestly about the difficulties of living with abuse and mental illness. What came through more than anything else is her love for her two sons.
