Where to begin with this book…. I feel like I must have a disclaimer before I recommend that you read this. It was very disturbing. I felt physically ill when I started to read the first couple chapters. I feel so distraught for Cupcake, for the torment, abuse and horrific experiences this woman had to go through.
She lost her mother. She was raped at a very young age. Abandoned. Beaten. Starting prostituting before she was a teenager. Gangs. Violence. Using heavy drugs at the age of 11 and continued to heavily use throughout her youth. The list goes on and on.
To read her transformation. To see this woman struggle more than most people would ever have to in their lives and to overcome and improve her life so greatly is truly inspirational.
Cupcake’s story made me appreciate my life so much. It made my life seem like a cake walk (pun intended).
This book is very honest and Cupcake does not leave anything out. She is truly vulnerable to her reader. I applaud her for what she has accomplished and I wish and hope that no one has to go through a life that like.
