Uneven collection of personal essays The best ones are relatively short and to the point others are lengthy and full of digressions.
I got a little sampler of this book at Yallfest with 3 author s essays in it I really liked those essays, and I cannot wait to read the full book when it comes out.
A fabulous idea, thoughtful contributions and a lot to think about Raw, funny, heartbreaking, inspiring, provoking, questioning and a darned good read.
This was a good one to read in bits and pieces I really liked all the different takes on hope, and these gave little shots of hope, to steal a term from Gayle Forman RTC on the blog this Friday
3.5 stars Review TK
