Some sections of this book were a little cyclical or repetitive but overall, I really liked SOMETIMES I TRIP ON HOW HAPPY WE COULD BE. I think Ms. Perkins's voice comes across as really authentic and she has a lot of really great things to say. She actually reminds me a lot of Grace Victory's memoir (only geared for an adult, rather than a teen, audience.) I read the two books back to back and I recommend you do, too, if you can. The overlaps and the parallels make for some great reinforcement and comparisons.
3.5 out of 5 stars
