An empowering story of an every-woman lady (who is also a great story teller) who fights her way through battles with hormone problems and feeling terrible to ultimately training for triathlons. She teaches anyone who reads it that anything is possible and that its worth the effort. When you are done you are going to want to get out and do something for yourself.
Learn while you laugh, really. The author just has such a great way of making you feel like you are in the middle of the story. There are a lot of great ideas about making family memories but the great thing is that instead of just telling you that you need to make memories, it gives you great ideas of what to do and what NOT TO DO through hilarious stories.
A wonderfully raw emotional look at a very real mother raising a challenging child in a world that really does not always understand or accept. Its as much of a story of the growth of the mother as it is of the growth of the child. But this is not your typical memoir. For every bit of tough stuff and learning there is ten times as much laughing and love.
After reading all 5 of her new releases what I first thing I think of is, she is a great story teller. She knows how to get you to drop your guard and pull you in. Some stories made me smile and others had me spewing my coffee and laughing out loud. While all the stories weave together, they are not about one animal or one scene or one period of time. A lot of the book is based on the authors experiences living in the Caribbean and the book at times transports you there and lets you feel it and see it through her experiences.
