If you like to escape into a celebrity memoir from time to time then add this to you list. That said, this book left me conflicted. This is not a tragic love story by any means. Cannon details her relationship with Grant and what she depicts is a classic emotionally abusive relationship. However, she never uses the word abuse. Like many abuse victims she internalized what happened to her and blamed herself. Really this is a cautionary tale but it isn't presented as such and that is what troubles me. Despite my concerns, I still found it a worthwhile read for the genre.

A few months ago I read Jennifer's book about life with her father, so decided to read about her mother's life with her father. Apparently, he was a man who thought no matter what was wrong with you, it could be cured by LSD.
