"A book I couldn't let go of ... Her use of poetry ... guided through the prose, is extraordinary ... it softens the blow of the terrifying experience of having to abandon life as she knew it and being thrown into a strange land where her body needs to be introduced to her ... a body that also needs to find itself ... as its identity changes from week to week ..."
"This is a story that is brimming with hope and inspiration. Once I had finished the first page, I knew I wouldn't be stopping until the last. Highly recommended."
