A Brave and Good Book




I know the person who wrote this book. It is about her and her fight with depression after being mothered by an emotionally abusive bear. (You know, Run 'em up a tree and and they'll come down when they get hungry enough.)

I actually couldn't put it down. I wondered if I found it so intriguing because I know Jill or because I spent 9 of my most formative years in the town she was writing about.
But when all was said and done, I realized it was intriguing because it was an interesting and truthful autobiography. Step on a Crack by Jill Byrne.
(Oh my God. It is so damn hard for me to write the title of a book without underlining it! Language Mechanics 101)

Buy it.
Read it.
Go on. Do it!
Now.
You can thank me later.

I will put it on my list Lynn, I just ordered from Amazon last night darn it. I have lived with clinical depression for most of my life, and have come a long, long way, so I am sure it would be a great book for me to read. Thanks for recommending it:)

Hi Lynn!

I keep a list of books I want to read....I'm going to add this one to it. Gotta love that free shipping at Amazon when you spend over 25 bucks....whew....that's easy to do!

Hugs,

This sounds like it will be an interesting and powerful story, Lynn. I agree it must have felt odd to know the setting was your former town. I am intrigued by Jill's story. On my list it goes.

Sounds like an interesting read. I enjoy reading books that are set in a location familiar to me. It makes the book, usually, more personal for me. Of course, being mothered by a bear makes it all the more! Good review.
