This 'book' (it reads more like a high school essay) is an OK personal account of the author's problems.  Unfortunately, there are moments in the book where the author sounds very conservative - she comes close to making derogatory (or at the least very insensitive) remarks about other's religious choices and sexual preferences.  There are numerous significantly better literary choices in this  area, and so I would suggest definitely skip this.
