This is an extraordinary memoir. On the surface, it's the story of a young girl's experience growing up in a violent, abusive household. On a deeper level, though, it's about the strength and resilience that can come from that.
I highly recommend this book. It's engrossing, heartbreaking, uplifting, funny, and horrifying, not to mention well-written. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
