What a fun, heartwarming, heartbreaking, and utterly compelling memoir. Henderson's voice is familiar and engaging - she draws the people in her life with realism and compassion, and admirable empathy. Though her youth was marked with tragedy and trauma, she was still able to find the fun and humor in life and share it with us. Read this if you were the weird kid who just wanted to read. Read this if your parents chose someone else over you. Read this if your grandmother defies stereotypes. Read this if you were a first-generation college kid. Read this if you are looking for a book about a cool person who thrived despite a difficult upbringing. Read this if you are looking for something good to read!
I could not put this down, and I even ordered a signed copy for myself despite having gotten a free ARC. The only thing I didn't like about this memoir was that it ended to soon. I hope Henderson continues writing her story, because I definitely want to read it.
