This book touched me a lot. The author is very straightforward about everything. She has a difficult time and makes her way through it, but it isn't like it was so hard until she conquered it into honey and rainbows. She struggles the whole book. She acknowledges the good and bad parts of herself also. She's made mistakes. It all comes out. Wild inspired me. I would like to undertake something this monumental in my own life. I plan to watch the film soon.
