About this deal

New York Times bestselling poet and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jewel explores her unconventional upbringing and extraordinary life in an inspirational memoir that covers her childhood to fame, marriage, and motherhood.

Blah blah blah, Jewel eventually goes totally in debt and then fires Mommy (and doesn't talk to her again for about 20 years... maybe more?) and starts dating a Rodeo guy and then has a kid. Happy ending? Hell no. Jewel self-evaluates everything to DEATH and it most likely ruined her marriage (they're divorced. Seriously, no cowboy is going to listen to some crazy Bimbo wife meditate and evaluate every assumed mental issue in their relationship and how to connect over Cosmic Spirit-bonding...) and this crap is most likely about to poison her young son as well, but she's too clueless to see it. Then there's a 2 hour lecture (in the audiobook) on how to raise children and the positive effects of meditating like a useless brain-dead hippie and reading endless books by professor know-it-all's on self evaluation. Jewel Kilcher, known in the music industry solely by her first name, shares her powerful story of childhood trauma, homelessness, career success, and healing. But Jewel learns to sing, and joins Daddy on the road and in the pubs. She has a great voice and takes it to a music college in the lower 48. Lisa Jamison, a journalist is just getting to her car, and inside she finds an emaciated man, Saul, who had just escaped from a sweatshop. He tells Lisa her story and she is intrigued and wants to help him and learn more and expose the owners of this sweatshop. She takes him to her friend Dorothy's home and enlists an ex-doctor friend to take care of him.

No, I never did sculpt his nose. But it was a pretty hilarious moment. I love that he didn’t flinch. He was like, Okay, feel it! It was funny. A little danger is necessary - healthy even - in this line of work. We'll never uncover the good stuff if we're always afraid of taking risks." Ilsa is a little naive and is forced to grow up and understand that life is different outside of the colonies and she can't force others to believe what is the truth.

I am enjoying this series! I enjoyed getting to know Lisa more, and I found her emotional depth in this novel well done. You Were Never Broken is the best poetry collection I’ve read this year, and whether or you have the same struggles as Foster or are an avid poetry reader, I’m sure there is something within the touching poems that will speak to you.There are, as others mentioned, some self-helpy passages in the book. But I didn't really mind it, something about her delivery and rhythm made it pleasant. I also felt the last few chapters were laden with details that didn’t interest me. I know they were important to her and I appreciate that. I simply wasn’t as engaged as the end drew near.
