I don't care if this author is the worlds biggest BBA or not (and honestly, I don't know if she has ever been labeled one), THIS BOOK ROCKED!
Yes, it was a book full of sexual frustration.
Yes, people disagree with the way she used Bi-polar disorder (if she would have added a little schizo in there, no one would have noticed the difference).
Yes, there were editing, grammar, and whatever issues with this book...
Over all, if you forget about everything else and just focus on the story (like a good little reader) it is a really good story.
The sub-title for this book is 100% appropriate.
This book IS real, raw, and ripped.
