Jane Wong's soft voice contrasts with the brutal life she faced with her abusive father, an alcoholic gambling addict who put her family in financial jeopardy. Her poetic words and phrasing soothe as she describes later boyfriends, including "the Bad One," who cruelly reinforced her negative self-image. Respite and love came from her friends, her mother, and the fantastical imagined feedback of "Wongmom.com," a source who responded with love to all the questions she asked. Wong's originality and the beauty of her descriptions remain constants in this memoir as emotions and time periods shift briskly. Humor lightens Wong's anger and angst. Her experiences with racism are powerfully conveyed. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
