A enjoyable reading the writer was descriptive, and gave you a chance to imagine the hard times she continued to go through. Stating she left home at a young age the narrater had her share of hard times, but didn't once give up but kept going, and adapted to her enviroment. Focused more so on material things I did feel she had her priorities wrong when it came to eating, and paying her bills. Lost of what to do in her twenties, it took some years for her to grow into a women. A women that was now thirty, and married.
