    My son hates reading. He HATES IT.
    Every time he has to read a book for school, I have to take the number of pages in the book, divide them by the number of days he has to READ it, and mark each day's reading block with a post it page marker. (example: 294 pages % 14 days = 21 pages per day! LOL)

In a time where blame, deflecting, and scapegoating is the status quo, the author spared no punches and yet presented this story in such a way as to elicit empathy and draw me into the nuances of his life. He did this without carrying a well deserved chip on his sh

    I was engrossed from beginning to the end. There is something so relatable about this book for me. It's sad, heartwarming and at times hilarious. But importantly it gives a good image of the Idiosyncrasies of their lives, at the time in America. And a deeper understanding about the complexities that make up their family and their mother.
