I love the feeling of wanting to hug a book to my chest and feeling grateful that I found it. For me, this rare. This story of a very hard life offered new seeds of thought, sudden epiphanies, and a different means of looking at social norms. I understand that this is not a book for everyone because it deals with topics such as child abuse and rape but, for me, by showing how the protagonist dealt with these issues I learned to undefine people and find beauty and strength in unexpected places.
