You Never Know: A Memoir
'Feature Artist at Lipstik Indie'
reviewed by Carolina Smart
When was the last time you read a book that moved you? Made you laugh one minute, cry the next, question yourself after reading a passage or had you think hard about your own mortality? The last book that moved me this way was "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold. "You Never Know: A Memoir", a biographical story, about the traumatic events that changed Romy Shiller's life for ever, is the book that took me on that turbulent roller coaster ride.
As the reader, you are taken along on the journey with Romy. She allows you a glimpse into her life, past, present and hopefully her future. As you ride along you will laugh, cry and clap for this extraordinary woman. Her story makes you think hard about how precious life is and how it can change in a fraction of a second. Many would have crumbled under these circumstances but Romy Shiller rises to the occasion over and over again.
You Never Know is an inspirational book that everyone should read, as it proves to you, that determination and a will to rise above should never be doubted and Romy Shiller will prove it to you.
