Amazing but painful
I found the book interesting, but painful. Both main characters had very difficult, dangerous and abusive childhoods, albeit, very different problems. Something in common, however, was that both had a parent with severe substance abuse problems. It is amazing that they both survived, but more amazing is that they both emerged as productive, successful adults. But, this was not the kind of story that I wanted to read. I wanted a feel good story of rescue and redemption. Instead, I got a story of survival. I loved "Blind Side" and was hoping for a story on that level. Instead, this is a story of two very damaged, destructive families and two survivors who come together to help each other. Yes, it has a happy ending, but getting through the journey was painful.
It is what it is. Changing the story would have made it fiction.
Well read with emotion. Great performance.
Maybe. If you want a story of survival, this is the story for you. I can certainly see this story giving someone hope and power. If you are feeling rather "beat up" and you need a happy story, pass over this one.
