Storm was always different from the other girls and women in her life. She was taller, bigger, louder - so she couldn't help but stand out.

Her major talent was her voice and singing was the only thing that made her happy. So, she went with it.

But she came across many obstacles along the way including bad boyfriends and drug addictions and her own battle with mental illness.
Best part of story, including ending: I loved the truthfulness and forthcoming story that Storm Large tells. She doesn't hold anything back. Her story is raw and painful at time, touching and sweet at other moment. It's a genuine story and anyone that reads it will not be able to help but feel closer to her.

Best scene in story: One of my favorite scenes is when she tells about going to the hospital to see her mom. Her mom is in a mental health facility and Storm is about 10 years old when the doctor tells her that she's likely going to end up just like her mother. Storm decides then and there that if she's going to lose her marbles she's going to have fun while she still can.

Opinion about the main character: I like that Storm never gives us. She comes awfully close at times but there is always some fight left in her.
