The book takes you through her whole life journey and all of her experiences in chronological order and at times I was so absorbed in it that I felt like I was in the room with her. I’ve laughed, cried (a lot) and got to know Michelle and myself more than I can describe.
I am beyond happy that I discovered this sensational woman on Instagram and will continue to support absolutely everything I can, Michelle truly does have so much to give to the world and we are truly blessed to have the pleasure of reading, watching and crying, smiling and laughing over her words.
Congratulations on a fantastic book, I hope there will be more to come!
Thank You so much, from a fellow scarred person, who is no longer scared.
Once I started to read I was hooked. Her writing is simple and unpretentious in its style and raw in its honesty. The book is written chronologically and in such as way as to be both easy to follow and to gain sympathy for the very real character of Michelle herself.
I got that wonderful feeling of being completely absorbed in a remarkable story; the kind of absorption that leaves you feeling a bit weird when you resurface into the real world. I finished the book in a few hours. It left me feeling hopeful about not only my future relationship with my body but with society's future relationship with us. We are fed so many messages that play on our insecurities, and it is easy to forget that we are not alone in feeling the pressure to conform and to be "beautiful".
I am so glad to hear a "beauty comes from accepting yourself as you are" message that actually resonates rather than making me want to break mirrors and/or vomit. This difference stems from the development of her story, and her blunt honesty throughout. Most refreshing.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
This book deserves to sell millions, not just because of how well the author writes or how gripping the story, but because of the impact it would have on every person who has lived with chronic illness or impairments, knowing that they aren't alone. We don't get many stories like Michelle's told as truthfully as this. Buy the book, pass it along, talk about it. This woman is too important for people not to know about.
The book is thought provoking and enlightening, but also I found it relatable to my traumas too - that feeling of not feeling alone anymore is indescribable. Michelle's journey has helped me to see my way as stepping stones and it warms my heart that you're doing better now eventhough I know these things will never go away - something else we have in common.
And Michelle, if you're reading this - thank you so much for your kindness and wisdom, you're a treasure in this world. I'm so glad I found your journey on Instagram. With love and warm wishes, Sylvie xxx
