Kick-Ass Kinda Girl: A Memoir of Life, Love, and Caregiving is one of those books that bring tears to the reader’s eyes while warming their heart — poignant, honest, and filled with humanism….The intelligence of the heart, the gift of following one’s gut, and the power of instinct are some of the qualities of the author that come out brilliantly through the narrative. …Beautifully written…this is a book that both inspires and entertains, loaded with the wisdom readers need to cope with challenging situations. A book for keeps.”
