I am not a big fan of memoirs, I think this may be the only one I have ever read to completion, but I loved this book. The things the kids in this family went through, and made it through, are astounding. Some parts had me laugh out loud, but most of them just left me shaking my head that any adult could put their family through even one of those incidents. But, what doesn't kills you makes you stronger, and this book is proof of that. Highly recommend.
