This was a wonderful book, so many up and downs, but truly a must read book!!! So much terrible abuse in this world...physical and emotional, this book expresses it all! If you're sensitive to this it may not be the book for you. I'm sure you could relate to some of the issues, and read this to see how things can turn around. With that said, I love Blaine he was a wonderful man, wish there were more Blaine's in this world!!!
