Review:

Pros:
This book was very funny and made me fall in love with Dolly and her carefree, happy-go-lucky way of being. Hearing about her shenanigans past and present was great. She’s made a genuine fan of me. I struggled with giving this 3 or 4 stars, but went with 4 because I tend to rate high.

Cons:
Towards the end of the book, it turns into about 30 pages of acknowledgments. The actual acknowledgements listed over 1.5k names and she did mention her publisher wanting her to edit her original list of 3k names. Also, the last chapter was extremely “spiritual, not religious” as she put it. I think Dolly wished she had included more about her faith throughout the book and just crammed it all in there

Overall, worth reading
