It's been two weeks since I finished this story and it has stayed with me in every possible delicious way. I find myself thinking of a moment or story from time to time and almost wanting to know even more than Nicole already so charismatically and vulnerably shared. I'm also telling everyone I know with a pulse to get this. You don't even have to read it! I bought the book and then realized I had a two-day road trip coming up so I purchased the audio book as well and basically had the  best two day road trip I've ever had. We were mesmerized by the story, the guts, the way Nicole pulled us so deeply into her struggle in a beautiful, artfully funny and heartbreaking way. I feel blessed to have heard the story in her own voice as well, the resonance added to the journey is exquisite. This book, the author, her words and story have touched me in a myriad of ways and I can't wait for the movie and I can't wait for more from Nicole!

"I like to get people laughing, and then punch them in the stomach." It's not as sadistic as it sounds, but Hardy's not foolin'; She will get you laughing, then punch you in the stomach. The thing is, you keep coming back for more because Nicole Hardy is a fantastic storyteller. With a carefully-crafted balance of wit and guts, she relates her experience in a way that is clever and charming, yet aches with stark vulnerability. Exquisitely written, and a joy to read -- Sucker punches and all.

Interesting, thought provoking memoir.  There are so many people that I think need and should read this book.   It helps you realize that you are not alone in your struggles others are going through the same thing the subject matter may just be a little different.  This is a memoir of one woman's coming of age when her age is her downfall It also helps you realize that sidelong comments may NOT always be as helpful as you think. Oh and keep the  tissues close.
