Book Review: Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown

I am not a book reader, I'm more of a magazine/newspaper reader.  But when I quit my job, I decided to read some books.  I could not put this book down.  

It is one of the best books about recovery (drug addiction and other hard stuff in life).  It has a lot of strong themes but it has a happy ending!! 

Loved it!  

It is a quick and great story.  

It has passages that are disturbing and emotionally provoking, just a warning for more sensitive readers...  

Part of what this book does is expose the failures of the child welfare system in this country and the ignorance of our society; it shows very well how and why a fractured and abusive childhood can lead to a life of crime and substance abuse. This probably won't be in the list on the mommy book clubs in this area.  

Sheltered people would come across this book as "offensive" or say that what happened to her can't possibly be true!  

The best part was that Cupcake gives hope for those who've been there that they are worthy and can be better, even when feeling defeated.  With the support of loving and patient network of people, you can overcome the biggest obstacles and realize your dreams, and put what you experienced badly in the past to rest.
