I'm surprised to see this book was rated only one star. I wonder why. I thought it was pretty good. Glad to see some of the story was embellished, because what she said she, her sibs and their friends did at very young ages was a bit hard to believe. But, I guess things can happen, all in how one is raised, I guess. I love how she got back at her rotten, abusive husband. That was classic!
