This book was good. Solid 4 stars, at one point it was a little dull, and I thought about stopping it (b/c I have several other books checked out that I'm excited to read) - but I'm glad I didn't. It is worth finishing.

I read this book within a couple of days- and I'm not a quick reader, but it had me wanting to know more about her life. It was sad to read about it but always interesting to read about another person's life.
