This book got me interested from the beginning. This is a number of therapy sessions of Barba with Dr.Darcy Dale. Barba has been going through different psychotherapy all her life, she heard the amazing outcome with Dr.Darcy and decided to try her. Will she be able to fix Barba.
Barba doesn't take a no for an answer and wants everything to go her way. She finds herself opening up to her. I found myself falling in love with Barba and her human side. She is a young girl from a small town who lost her dad from the young age. She went through what most of us go through, she had to deal with bullying at school. I liked how she tells her story with a bit of humor to keep you interested in reading more.
She made it through it all. She is a strong person and she really cares about her music career. She couldn't risk getting a nose job because of her music career. Her mother way of dealing with pain was by talking down to her making her feel bad about herself. She used that negativity to push her self forward to be a big star. No part of this book was uninteresting to me I was so wrapped in it. The therapy sessions are paying off. Barba is starting to realize that her mother loved her she was just dealing with trauma. People deal with trauma in different ways she also lost a husband.
What I liked most about the book is that it is written well, it kept everything interesting with Barba witty sense of humor. I found myself laughing and crying at the same time. She is also a great storyteller. It is so interesting to find out about her life. She is a human too, she may be a big star but she has the same insecurities we all have. I used to think physiotherapy was a waste of money but this book changed my mind. We all need help sometimes and sometimes it hard to speak to friends and family. It may come hardy. It a beautiful story to get you to know more about the life of this icon.
I rate this book 4 out of 4. It is well written and easy to follow. I found no errors in the book which made it enjoyable. Every Barba fan would enjoy this book. The book is most suitable for adults and also a young adult.
