Editorial Reviews

C.R. Zwolinski
"Out of the depths of her pain and eventual acceptance, Deborah created not only this ruggedly honest book (which entranced me--I read it in one gulp), but also some creative and important projects...
Her language deftly conveys her experience of sensory disorder and I found myself riding on the waves of her emotions and her sense of time.”

    What a journey this memoir took me on. Deborah was brutally hone

    What a journey this memoir took me on. Deborah was brutally honest, more so than I could ever be, yet her story wasn't depressing or downbeat. Instead it was a testament to Deborah's resilience, and a peek inside the mind of an angry young girl with many questions and few answers. I read it all the way through, I really felt a need to know how things ended with both mother's. I shed a few tears, had a few laughs, but mostly I took away a sense of peace and love and acceptance.
