"This is a really wonderful book about finding your self esteem and your way. I loved the mother. I loved Carmie. They were so real and vulnerable and right on. It made me long for Malibu and mother-daughter relationships and the days the surfer legends had at easier, softer times. I sent it to my God-daughter who has struggled with self esteem and I said, "here it is, Babe. Your summer read. Read this!""
–Jamie Lee Curtis
