I love when people share their story with the world. It means they are brave enough to let go of their past and live in the present, enjoying life to the fullest.
Maybe one day, I will, too.

I always like a story about overcoming a tough childhood. It is a very difficult accomplishment. This one sounds like a quality effort. Thanks for the engaging introduction to this book.

Wow, you made a memoir sound interesting! That takes skills. I don't usually (more like ever) read memoirs or autobiographies, but it actually sounds pretty good. I might even check it out! :wink:
Thanks for the review.

I came here to take a look at how book reviews are done. You've written your review quite well, and the memoir sounds like something I'd recommend to a few friends of mine. Keep up the awesome work!

Well, bless your heart! I am so glad you read my review, and when I was first starting out, I made it a goal to read at least five reviews a day and comment on them. It gave me good insight to how to put it together. It also introduced me to some fine writers on this site and great books! Best wishes to you!

It’s a process to bare one’s soul to the world. And I always highly respect a person who does so. Maybe you can begin writing it now, and as it goes on paper, your courage will find its full momentum. I bet you have a great story to tell that will be of good help to many. Thank you so much for reading my review.

Well, it’s short, so maybe it would be okay for you to give it a go. 😊 I understand how some genres aren’t for everyone. I have read so many books here that I never thought I would. I appreciate your kind comments, and thank thank you so much for reading my review.

Striving to achieve success is not a small feat, especially for someone from a shaky home with low income. I smell inspiration. I think this book is for me.

In a world where everyone is pointing fingers to blame anyone else for their situation, it is refreshing to hear stories of people taking responsibility for their own future and actually turning lemons in to lemonade. Thank you for this great review. This is one to add to my bookshelf for future reading.

I could relate to that.. mismanagement and cruelty from home, I grew up the same way. It is not so easy, I admired the author for successfully overcoming the big tides of his life.
The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that, there's only one way left to go and that is up! 😊
