“Indepenpress Publishing just released the harrowing, humorous and extremely controversial new memoir by Allison Peterson Sparks Fly Upward is an unusually unique mix of misery lit and gay interest, the book details one woman’s plight through life, being sexually abused as a child by her uncle, living with her father who had Asperger’s, before realising she was gay and falling in love with her psychiatrist who was transgendered.
Told with unflinching honesty, Sparks Fly Upward deals with numerous taboo subjects that affect thousands of people all throughout the UK including sexual abuse, mental illness, alcoholism, and sexual identity. Yet, it is also a story of redemption, salvation, triumph, and finding happiness.
Although this may sound like the plot of some provocative new soap opera, it is actually the narrative of Allison Peterson’s life. Having encountered more traumatic and damaging experiences than most people would dare imagine, Allison’s brutally honest account of abuse, mental illness, alcoholism, gender and sexual identity take the reader through a plethora of emotions. This is an edgy, hard-hitting read for fans of misery lit, but it is also a book about triumph, finding confidence, and being comfortable with who you are.”
This book sounds interesting, drama-filled and a little crazy, I am interested to see how it reads. I am starting this book and I am looking forward to reading the message inside of it. I will let you know how it turns out!
