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)
Go on. Do it!
You can thank me later.
