With or Without You - Domenica Ruta Domenica has an interesting story to tell, but this book falls flat. Towards the end of the book, Nikki writes, "In sobriety, memories return slowly and in the wrong order". Nikki's stories come as a stream of conscience. She often gets ahead of herself. There's no structure or timeline. She'll go from talking about college to post college to elementary school and then back to high school.

This memoir could be incredible, but a lack of editing and guidance really holds it back.


Note: I received this book as an ARC from Shelf Awareness and the publisher.
