Thank you, Jackie, for recommending this. Definitely a subject I am interested in, and moreso because it's autobiographical. 


My biggest problem was was with the timeline and her jumping around in her story. I found it confusing at times. I also think she was very naive if she didn't think her book would reflect back both on her school and on the women whose stories she told.
