    " Actually didn't finish it, I kept reading it waiting for some more substance but all i got form it is Dixie liked herself alot and thinks though she wasn't perfect, it was like a 'self help' book of how to be more like her. Turned off and tuned out by page 150ish. "

    " If you're a woman who still appreciates class - read it. If you're someone who swoons over a gorgeous southern accent - get the audiobook. If you're someone who is just awesome - you'll probably enjoy it as well. "
