Review: Our Unscripted Story

Our Unscripted Story Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5 #AllTheFeels Stars!!!

Omg... this book! I’ve been shredded, gutted, broken into tiny shards of glass. I need some time to get my thoughts together to write a review ...Ok.  I'm back & ready.  Here we go:

From the Prologue until it's bittersweet end, I was hooked. Every page that I turned, my heart seemed to tear and shred.  It was gut-wrenching!  There were times that I didn't want to go on, but I sucked it up and continued, cause I'm no quitter.  As the story unfolded, the tears to my heart were patched up and glued together as I become more engrossed by Alexis' domineer, her candidness and her strength of character.  She has had life fail her at every turn, but has come out to be one of the most loved and happy characters I've ever read.

I truly believe L.A. Fiore is genius not only with her words, but how she uses them to shape her stories into real life situations.  Hands down, if I ever see another ARC from her, I'm signing up & then immediately heading into the local grocery store to stock up on tissues.  It's money well spent to be so enamored of her brand of story-telling.   This book spans decades in one persons life and I have never felt more like I've been apart of the story.  It just flows and you never feel as if you are missing anything, however small detail there is.

The book was well though out.  The most beautiful take away I have from this story is that family is more than biology.  It's the people we welcome into our lives, who stick around with us, laugh & cry with us, make us feel valued and important - that is what makes a family.  This story will stay with me for a long time to come.
