I, like many others, thought it was well written. I have not watched hoarding shows, so was constantly horrified at the ongoing accumulations. The memoir did not address the "childhood accident" that had given her a small trust fund, and I wondered HOW her parents could pay for acting lessons, move, eat out, keep a car, etc. What funding was involved? She had an incredible childhood and brilliant, but sick parents. It's a triumph she survived and still loves them both. Initially I was very surprised her father was the hoarder. I had just assumed it would be her mother.
