When I bought this book, I had no idea who Carre was (I'm only 22). I hesitated buying this book because I could really care less about celebrities, but something told me that I should get this book, and I'm glad I did. I thought that Carre told her story with such raw honesty and the book was very captivating. As someone else already stated in their review, the horrible things that happened to Carre are more common than people like to think. Carre addresses these issues and talks about the need for change. She has come out on the other side as a very strong woman who has found healing. Towards the end of the book I found myself tearing up because of some of the revelations she brings.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship, have suffered from sexual assault and abuse, and have also suffered from and eating disorder, all for several years. Reading about how much Carre's life has changed gives me so much hope to continue on my healing journey. I truly recommend it to anyone who has a similar story to Carre's.
With all of that being said, I'm giving the story only 4 stars because I really wished that Carre had addressed the eating disorder part a bit more. She claims to have suffered for ten years, but she didn't mention it until the last section of the book. I know first-hand that an eating disorder affects your every day life, whether you acknowledge it at the time or not. I really wish she would have addressed her struggle with that a bit more and her time in therapy. I do understand though that recollecting every single memory can be hard, especially in that state of mind because it becomes hard to remember things. I also found it a little annoying how Carre claimed to love every single person she dated, even if they only dated for a month. I think maybe Carre's spirituality plays a part in this; maybe her belief is that everyone can love each other. But that part doesn't really affect my review, it's more of just a personal opinion.
