8 out of 10

I don't know how Walls is able to describe her life growing up with the amount of affection and nostalgia that is evident in this memoir. I think if I had grown up in the same type of situation I would have been permanently scarred for life and would have only ill feelings for my parents. Thankfully I grew up in a loving home that was thankfully ordinary. I'll count my blessings for that :)

As for the book itself...the writing was well done and quite captivating. I flew through the book quite quickly...well quickly for me :)

I have set this aside as a surprise wishlist fulfillment for a BookObsessor.
