I liked the beginning of this book a lot I smiled a lot, I laughed out loud several times, and sometimes I just had to cry with Michele.The second half got kind of boring to me I guess because it wasn t like omg, I can totally relate any, and I know that s petty to say, but I rate books by how much I enjoy them and not really merit or how outstanding they are, or form or whatever It seemed a little dated sometimes I feel awful saying that, but it just made me not enjoy it.I guess I liked the beginning of this book a lot I smiled a lot, I laughed out loud several times, and sometimes I just had to cry with Michele.The second half got kind of boring to me I guess because it wasn t like omg, I can totally relate any, and I know that s petty to say, but I rate books by how much I enjoy them and not really merit or how outstanding they are, or form or whatever It seemed a little dated sometimes I feel awful saying that, but it just made me not enjoy it.I guess that s it I liked a lot of parts, loved some, loved some , and some made me go Ugh, do I really have to read this What happened to this book Can you only enjoy this book if you can relate to it I wonder Anyway, I d definitely use some of her essays in my classroom Note I think that if I was a struggling poet writer, I would have liked the whole book I guess this means that I just feel awful saying that I don t love all of it Okay, I get it, I guess many parts just didn t appeal to me There, I said it I d recommend this book if you select what you read and don t feel obligated to read all of it I always have to finish a book from beginning to end because I feel like a cheat not doing so
