Even though there were parts of the book that I did not enjoy, I rated it a 4 out of 4. I liked that it was so easy to relate to the narrator as a mother dealing with teenage boys, as a survivor, and as a risk taker. Her travel descriptions were very poetic. Her style was at times humorous. It was very inspiring and well written.

I gave the book 4 out of 4 stars. I appreciated the author's positivity even when she was talking about less than fortunate circumstances. She also gave vivid descriptions of what she came across during her voyage. All in all, it was an engaging and uplifting read.
