She was going blind, courtesy of a disease called retinitis pigmentosa, and she had a decade or so before lights-out. To cope, she decides to hide her disease and live like there's no tomorrow ... She tears through boyfriends, joins a circus school, and travels all over.

I like to read memoirs about people with medical challenges hoping to find inspiration and/or coping skills to help me with mine. This gal's coping skill seemed to me to be denial and then with the love of a very wonderful partner she was able to charge on with life.

Author shows her creative chops in this memoir. Her humor is infectious yet the strength of this memoir the honesty. The desire to deny and hide from her impending blindness and her acceptance are what makes this book a must read for others.

A very entertaining, heartwarming, funny memoir with a spunky, slightly snarky (but in a really nice way) narrator. Nicole Kear shows us all how challenges can be faced in so many different ways.

This was a very entertaining book. She has a good sense of humor about going blind and being a mother.
