First of all, let me say that I know that this book doesn't come out for seven months, but I feel like it's my duty to come on Goodreads and rave about how much I loved The Measure of My Powers.
Vulnerability is a tricky thing and it's not easy to put some of your darkest thoughts on paper, but lucky for readers, that's what Jackie Kai Ellis has done. She writes of a time when she thought suicide was a better option than living and she shares the insecurities she has with her body. These dark moments are shared with such description, that you'll start to think you were there next to her. It's through the power of food and her learnings about food in Paris, that Jackie is able to reclaim her voice, her power.
If you loved Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert or Julie & Julia by Julie Powell, you'll adore every word in this fantastic debut.
