SNL, AMAZON REVIEW
I laughed, I cried, I got pissed, I reminisced my past, I called my mom, it made me want to reach out to my dad who I haven't seen in five years. It rocked me to my core. This book is written with wit and a raw and pure truth you can rarely find unless confiding with a best friend, and even then, those deepest thoughts and feelings aren't even shared.
LUIS, AMAZON REVIEW
Such a haunting, psychological thriller with piercing imagery...it summoned a visceral response that left me devouring page after page!
