While this memoir definitely deserves attention, the editor should be put on NOTICE! The portion of the book dedicated to Cup's drug abuse (which unfortunately seems to be the meat of the book) went on ad nauseam! I mean really...was it necessary to revisit every single incidence of drug usage during this young woman's life?!?! It was mind-numbing, redundant, and superfluous (just like this sentence). The only reason I didn't give this read 2 stars was because the first and last portions are quite thought provoking. My husband gave it 4 stars because he really appreciated her struggle and success of gaining control of her life. Cupcake Brown is most definitely a character, but the book needs to come out in Cliff's Notes form.
