There’s simplicity and honesty in her writing style. One could relate to her journey, I enjoyed reading this unfiltered version of her story. How everyone around her helped her, and how she coped up in her career.
With crisp, simple narration, it’s a good read that you will enjoy. I loved the poem in the last chapter. She refers to her mom’s book in certain chapters and her posts.
The love between mother and daughter, being grandparents, relationships. Her bond with her parents, how they trusted her and her choices, and how her sister came to her rescue, everything is beautifully expressed by her.
