“While the book’s relatable content carries you through time, it has a wealth of wisdom. This work is a rousing hybrid of memoir and manifesto. … This book has those extra treats tucked in between the pages with a quirkiness not every writer is blessed with. Sometimes the edges are blurred in a way that highlights that place where stories and real life converge, where magic contains truth and the world as it appears is more intriguing.”
