This memoir details the loss of extreme privilege. But, by the end, I wasn't sure that the writer was missing wealth/father/childhood privilege as much as basic common sense/intelligence. Frustrating. I'm glad I listened to it, but I'm not sure I recommend it. If anything, it's a cautionary tale of the extensive damage that can be done to children when money takes the place of love in a "perfect" childhood that was built on greed and being better than the neighbors. Hmph.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Not really. I thought I would read about introspection, but it was all about the glitzy perfect life with celebrities that poor Christina and her family had to give up. She portrays herself at completely naive, while still portraying the good life and all the name brands she can fit into the book.
Any additional comments?
I hoped for MUCH more from this book. Perhaps the Amazon reviews made it out to be better than it was, but I wasultimately disappointed.
