Saving Myself: A Los Angeles Childhood is a lovely, sad, funny, sensual, poetic, heart-breaking, but hopeful coming home memoir! I read the book in one sitting and will return to it form time to time to remember certain passages. Somehow, experiencing the family of Jeanne Simonoff brings me, the reader, home as well. Though about a specific life, it is also universal. As a pediatrician who often expresses the need for play and a haven environment for children at home and school, I see that this story-from the child perspective-will be an important reading for our schools. Jeanne Siminoff has captured the brilliant, creative simplicity of childhood. It is exhilarating to experience vicariously the miracle of finding wholeness. I rise with Ms Simonnoff to be blessed. I will cherish this in my life.  July 31, 2011
