Jeanne Simonoff's memoir, Saving Myself, is a childhood story, that, in some way, we can all relate to. It took me back to my own childhood friendships. It portrays how a child tries to relate to what is happening in the word of adults around them with the people they love with tenderness.
This memoir reads like a poem, but not the kind of poem that gets you lost in abstractions. It is the kind of poem that takes you into the heart of a life, lets you sit there, roam around, play, laugh, cry and finally find a way to figure it all out.
This is a must read for anyone interested in their own life. Congratulations Jeanne Simonoff -- for your book, the courage to tell your story and for letting us know that at some point -- it will all make sense.
