really liked this book . She became a mother to a son too young and made something of herself . This is about all she experienced and encountered along the way . But not your typical Cinderella story , brutally honest at times . But she remained her own person !

This was really a touching, quick read. Honest and heartwarming, Donofrio chronicles her journey from rock bottom to college graduate beautifully.
