Published: A Thomas Dunne Book for St. Martin's Griffin - October 3rd, 2017

"this book won't pull at heartstrings, but instead yank out the entire organ and shake it about before lodging it back in an unfamiliar position," - a review on the inside of the cover says it perfectly. It was beautifully written & hauntingly laid out making it impssible to put down for very long. Both ugly & wonderful, Wavonna's life wil will move you & redefine "gray area" with carefully blurred lines. the circumstances of life obey no one.

This book was a breath of fresh air. Brene Brown is excellent at giving it to you straight just when you need it. If you're a note taker, be prepared to take ontes in a journal because so many times this will give you something deep & profound to mull over for days to come. Haunting and deeply poetic in thought, this is one of my favorite self-help books yet.
