Her Last Death: A Memoir by Susanna Sonnenberg

What is the deal with these types of adult memoirs? This read a lot like Driving with Dead People, but Her Last Death isn't as good.

Sonnenberg had a horrible mother, no doubt about it. She had to deal with her mother's constant boyfriends, moving, and drugs. Her mother lied, cheated, and manipulated everyone around her. After reading this one, I thought, "I'm glad I didn't grow up in this family!" I won't be purchasing this for PHS because I didn't think it was very good. Sonnenberg still seems like her life is messed up. She never mentioned therapy, but I think she is a prime candidate. Her childhood, teenage years, and early adulthood were just plain crazy.
