“A personal memoir, tragic and hopeful.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Running in Heels is a personal memoir sent to me by the author a few weeks ago. I usually pass review copies out to other reviewers but I read the back and this caught my eye so I thought I’d slot it in next in my TBR pile.
The moment I started it I had echoes of The Glass Castle and I’d recommend Running in Heels to anyone who loved Walls’ memoirs as they have some strong parallels.
I started reading and for the few first chapters the only thing I’d say is I wished there was more. The story seemed to skim over things I’d have liked to hear more about, but it didn’t continue and within a few chapters the story flowed beautifully and I could hardly put it down. As I read on the story became more in depth as the story concentrates on Perez’s adult life.
