This was a great story about rolling with the punches when life keeps throwing curve balls at you. Even though this is an autobiographical read, it is written in such a way that people not only empathize with Zara and what she has been through but is also written in a way that some people can relate to. Even though the plot seems simplified, it is actually multilayered and has depth. I think the only complaint I have with this read is that it went a little fast at times where I was left feeling like I had watched a movie in fast-forward. I like fast-paced books where there isn't a lull in the story but, I think there were times where the story could have slowed down and taken time to be more developed so the reader isn't left wondering, "huh?". That said, I did enjoy reading her story and following Zara's journey.
