This book was better than I was expecting it to be.
I, like most Americans, watched this story with great interest years ago. I used to wonder: “Why does this poor woman stay with this idiot?” Mrs. Buttafuoco answers that question in this book. She is a very likable person, with a great sense of humor and that really comes across during the reading of this book. I have a lot of respect for her and all that she endured.
I truly recommend this book!
Mary Jo was shot while I was raising two boys in Brooklyn. This story was talked about by everyone including children at my kid's School. I could not believe Mary Jo's life was being portrayed on live TV as if she didn't deserve respect or privacy as the victim of a crime. I was appauled when Amy was sentenced to such a short time in prison. I suspected Joey had some hold on Mary Jo but I also understood her need to hang on as she was very fragile at that point and he was all she knew. Many people criticized her for staying and defending Joey but she needed to get her bearings before she could make her move. I'm proud of the woman she was and has become. She remained true to herself and her children. Most of all she Survived and is stronger for it. I wish you the best Mary Jo. I feel as if I've known you forever! Thank you for answering the questions I never thought to ask..... Be well my friend xo.
