Hrrrm...I didn't like this one as much as I thought I would.
The one aspect I really enjoyed was the way she describes certain scents throughout her childhood and that's why I gave it three stars instead of just two. In my own writing I have trouble with scents, so to see it so well done gave me many ideas on how I can make my own writing better in this area.
However, alcholism and horrible family situations are nothing new to the memoir genre and I didn't feel as if she brought anything new to this aspect.
All in all, this memoir didn't live up to the hype, at least for me.
