“I have not survived against all odds. I have not lived to tell. I have not witnessed the extraordinary. This is my story.” These words lay it all out from the very beginning. Amy’s life is ordinary; her writing style is not. This is a biography of sorts, formatted like an encyclopedia. Entries are in the form of charts, lists, and short paragraphs and are categorized by headings such as Famous, How You Know You Are and Stupid Slow Driver. A peculiar but entertaining read.
