    First, let me say that this is the first book I ve finished in at least 6 yrs, maybe longer I have a disability that makes reading difficult, so despite my eagerness to read over the last 10 yrs, it s always difficult for me to get through a book This book, so beautifully written, kept me turning pages until the wee hours of the morning for 4 nights I probably could have read it in 2 nights, but I loved it so much that I didn t want it to end, so I made it last This book is a roller coaste First, let me say that this is the first book I ve finished in at least 6 yrs, maybe longer I have a disability that makes reading difficult, so despite my eagerness to read over the last 10 yrs, it s always difficult for me to get through a book This book, so beautifully written, kept me turning pages until the wee hours of the morning for 4 nights I probably could have read it in 2 nights, but I loved it so much that I didn t want it to end, so I made it last This book is a roller coaster of emotions I found it fascinating The author openly shares her life s trials, tribulations, escapades, heartache, and joy with the reader with such feeling and passion that I felt like I knew her well by the time I finished the book Despite the very different paths that our lives took, I was able to relate to this book in many ways I laughed and wept, I felt devastated for her as her life spiraled out of control and rejoiced for her when she survived each out of those battles that kept popping up for her from early childhood through adulthood Her passion for life is incredible, as is her passion for other people and the dogs she saves despite her hardships I could relate to her feelings in childhood, her 12 Step experiences, her atheism, her love of animals, her often rotten love life, and her desire to rise about it all and be well This is a book that I m so glad I took a chance on I almost didn t buy it, due to a history of spending on books only to have them sit there, unread and unloved This book, I read And loved And may even read again There s much to absorb Kudos, Dawn Lawson, for this incredible book I feel honored that you shared your life, your wisdom, your experience, strength, and hope with me us I wish you, always, the very best

    I was given this book through a Goodreads giveaway and I was delighted to win it.I will start by saying there is a LOT to love about this book This is someone who has gone throughin their life than I thought possible How does one person be chased by their mom with an ax, work as a camel tender, work in a mannequin factory, save rescue dogs, battle addiction and that s not even getting to the bank robbery bit yet I enjoyed Dawn s writing a lot and there were absolutely fascinating st I was given this book through a Goodreads giveaway and I was delighted to win it.I will start by saying there is a LOT to love about this book This is someone who has gone throughin their life than I thought possible How does one person be chased by their mom with an ax, work as a camel tender, work in a mannequin factory, save rescue dogs, battle addiction and that s not even getting to the bank robbery bit yet I enjoyed Dawn s writing a lot and there were absolutely fascinating stories.That being said, I think this book could have done with a better editor Not for grammar and spelling but for the layout of the book, the cover and even the title I think the cover is doing this book a disservice Mixed with the title, it makes the book seem campy and fun In reality, it s a dark, dark story One I m thankful for but not the story that the title and cover would suggest I also feel like I had to work for these fascinating parts that should have been played upThe book was pretty long and there were parts that could have been slimmed down and other parts that could have been pumped up

    The premise of this book was interesting and promising how the author went from an abusive background to alcohol drug addiction to finally getting back on her feet In reality, the book was a mess The timeline jumped around erratically, often without giving the reader enough background on the new people introduced and resulting in the feeling that you somehow didn t read a chapter It was also extremely repetitive A judicial editing would make the story clearly andimpactful instead it The premise of this book was interesting and promising how the author went from an abusive background to alcohol drug addiction to finally getting back on her feet In reality, the book was a mess The timeline jumped around erratically, often without giving the reader enough background on the new people introduced and resulting in the feeling that you somehow didn t read a chapter It was also extremely repetitive A judicial editing would make the story clearly andimpactful instead it often felt like the reader was being lectured at repeatedly
