Do you ponder complex ideas of identity and reinvention? Here is a must-read for everyone, especially every mother, who has ever hoped for a second act in life.
In her younger years, Jillian Lauren was a college dropout, a drug addict, and an international concubine in the Prince of Brunei’s harem, an experience she immortalized in in her bestselling memoir, SOME GIRLS. In her thirties, Jillian’s most radical act was learning the steadying power of love when she and her rock star husband adopt an Ethiopian child with special needs. After Jillian loses a close friend to drugs, she herself is saved by her fierce, bold love for her son as she fights to make him-and herself-feel safe and at home in the world.
I can relate to a woman on a journey who tries lots of things, right and wrong, in her quest to find her self. Check out my review of Jillian’s first book Pretty.

I thought a book with that title would be more of a self-help book giving advice on how to accomplish your goals. I was surprised when I read your review. Sounds like a very good book.
I have not had radical changes in my life.
With that title, I did not expect this type of memoir. I am not sure what I expected.
