I love the sound of Regina's voice
I love books that are read by the author. Regina was the only narrator that could have told this jaw dropping history. I love her accent, it made me connect to her story that much more. I wanted to reach back in time and help her. This book is excellent.

I love the Author's accent. I'm from "the area" she grew up in, and it made me feel nostalgic for "Home".
I was excited when she heard from her father.....but don't want to give out spoilers so I can't say why my excitement was short lived.
I just think she is angry at her mom. I did not and will not finish the book, it's that "blah". I know that she had a tough life, but many of us did. I am sorry she had to endure what she did, and I KNOW how hard abuse is on children.
I was really turned off when she brought politics into her story.
