The book discussion

I have the book for my ipad2. Nice pictures of Shania and Eja. Also, a note at the beginning says this work is a memoir and it reflects my present recollections of experiences over several years. certain names and identifying characteristics have been changed

Note, the book dedication.... "For my son, Eja".

Some of her chapter titles, sound like her song titles...

In no particular order...
Life Among the Loons
Give Me A Break
Digging My Own Hole
Love Story
Rearview Mirror
The Wrong Train
Avoid Open Ice
New Country, New Name
New to Nashville
The Flip side of fame
Up! Up! and Away!!

In her forward, she talks about wanting people to think of reading this book like sitting around a campfire sharing her stories.

I skipped to the last 4 chapters right away, haha.

A few of my thoughts:
1) My dislike for Mutt and Marie-Ann has increased significantly.
2) Thank goodness for Fred.
3) Shania seems to be very concerned about her image and body right now. I know that's natural, but I just want to say: NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT!

Cheater!!!

She does look fantastic. Mutt cheating really threw her into a mental tailspin.

Shania would go around and let the air out of people's tires. She would go out at night and get into mischief with the boys.

Another Shania quote..."when everything goes without a hitch where's the challenge, the opportunity to find out what you're made of?" -Shania

Maybe she could have been a US Marine.

I could have sworn her name was Anne-Marie when it happened or was I dreaming?

I think it is part of the name change strategy mentioned at the beginning of the book...it's a funny game Shania is playing I am guessing...

I find that the book is written as if we are catching up on an old friend.
