All the way through this magical yet sometimes disturbing story you are filled with hope for a happy ending. The life of the main character is at times enchanting and sometimes distressing. As a visual reader, the narrator renders images in the mind of each character and scene.
I used to read Sally Gardiner stories to my daughter so it is perhaps understandable that I enjoyed this book written under her pseudonym.

A superb memoir for anyone who grew up in the 80’s

This story had me laughing out loud! I was right there at the awkward times, for the challenges and the emotions. It was almost too close to home but brought back some great memories.

Enlightening and empowering without the guilt!

So often when I read a book like this, I go away feeling bad about myself. As if I’ve been a terrible parent and wife, friend and daughter. But Brene Brown takes away the guilt and shame by normalising it with her many examples of how and when we are alike; we have common humanity. I learnt so much that I feel empowered to change the way I speak and behave and respond to others. She is brilliant and funny too! Thank you Brene Brown.
