Editorial Reviews

ForeWord Clarion Review
O'Neill's writing is clear and crisp. The true hallmark of the book is her relentless honesty. She hides nothing. And while the story may feel biased toward her own experiences rather than making sense of the family as a whole, it's a viewpoint she clings to openly. Readers will sense that O'Neill's focus on herself is her best means of self-preservation.

The book will serve as a startling and chilling—but, ultimately, healing—mirror for people who have endured dysfunctional family relationships, battled substance abuse, or wrestled with secret horror and shame.
