Even though this book isn't that long page-wise it seemed to drag on and on. If I would have known that all 51 dates that Kristen goes on are written out in detail I probably wouldn't have read this book. I found the parts about her childhood interesting, but I just couldn't get interested in her 51 dates. I'm sure writing this book was therapeutic for her, but it just wasn't a book for me. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone I know. I do applaud Kristen McGuiness on her journey to get sober and stay sober though.
