Ellen Degeneres decided to live her life in truth. After reading this book you can definitely see where she got her courage and strength from. Whether gay or straight you have got to admire the whole Degeneres clan for their support of Ellen and each other. Betty Degeneres' book touched every emotion inside my body and as a woman who is not 'out' I wish she was my mum! It is a book about truth, in Ellen's life, in Betty's life and hopefully in my life to come - because the book does give you strength to want to reach this place where she is with this mother/daughter relationship. It is a wonderful and cohesive journey throughout and shows us a new dimension to this already multi-talented woman. Betty would probably say that she was just a regular mother, but if there were more mothers/fathers/sisters/brothers/friends/co-workers, even strangers, like her in this world there would be less people like me. I have read the book three times in as many months and it will always remain one of my treasured possessions.
And, as they say in America 'GO BETTY'!
