“So, this is my life, for better or for worse”.
I loved the honest and frank introduction to this book, I felt that I instantly liked Lisa and this helped to get into the right frame of mind when reading.
It is inspirational how much one person can go through in their life. At times I felt very angry for Lisa, sometimes I laughed with (and at) the stories and a big chunk I just felt sad for the things Lisa has had to go through. However, if this book teaches nothing else, it is that no matter what someone does to you, forgiveness can still be given (and this is no means a “sad” book, it could be, but Lisa hasn't allowed this to happen).
“The day of my birthday, I was released from foster care”.
Funny (very funny, thank goodness Lisa has this approach to life!), chaotic, sad, emotive and dramatic, just a few words to describe this roller-coaster of life being told.
I must add I particularly love the “Sister for Sale” chapter and my heart was racing for Lisa during the chapter about the riot!
“Nothing in this life would be the same again”.
There are also lovely illustrations dotted throughout this book which I also really liked. All in all, a very good book. A big thank you to @Booktasters and Lisa Orban for a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I am always honest when reviewing books and I would recommend this book to you.
Each chapter in Lisa’s life has short stories that make this book easy to read. My favorite stories that had me laughing to tears were when she started sleep walking because of stress. Everyone though their house was “haunted” because they didn’t know how things were being moved around, not even Lisa. Another was when she arrived to her Prom in a squad car.
Lisa made the statement often that she was “a broken vase held together with Elmer’s glue”. I think her story would not be complete without her telling about her abusive husband. Her story is fun enough to keep you reading, while sucker-punching you with her strength and resolve at the end. Excellent book to give to a friend you may be concerned about abuse but too afraid to bring up the subject.
