I really wanted to like this book but unfortunately I did not. The first half of the book is a constant whine. The book is more of a ramble than a story and then the whole thing abruptly ends. I do admire her effort to write a book but did not appreciate the many spelling errors throughout. Most of her attempts at humor fell flat. The descriptions of Basil her dog and his adventures were my favorite part. I hope writing the book helped her heal. Her poetry also was enjoyable.
