About this deal

When I was very young, in the fall and winter, Dad often brought home meat from the buffalo packing slaughterhouse where he sometimes picked up extra hours. There was one element of the story I wasn't fond of, and wish it hadn't been included, but otherwise I liked how the story developed.

I was intrigued by story at the beginning of your review and couldn’t figure out why you only awarded the book two stars, although soon figured it out! One need not care about politics or campaigns to appreciate this raw, honest account of one man’s journey from a gay boy afraid of being discovered to a symbol of hope for countless Americans. And if anyone has an issue with being asked to do the bare minimum, like I said, it’s a reflection on them, not you. As family secrets are pulled to the surface, everyone has something they want to keep hidden - Christina, the youngest Kennedy daughter, is already struggling with her mental health.They are generous, loving, hardworking people who love their friends, their community, and their work. What if I die at the age of thirteen on a rocky riverbank surrounded by nothing but mosquitoes and half-eaten Cheez-Its?

We always had four-legged friends in the house, the first of which (in my time) was a Pekingese named Brittany.

The title is appropriate: Buttigieg does indeed have something – many things, from the hilarious to harrowing – to tell us that go beyond his prolific Twitter account. The woods and waters of Northern Michigan provided a lot of necessary set elements for my “go rub some dirt in it, you’ll be fine” childhood. There was an interesting premis about an abduction, but it quickly turned into a dysfunctional family story. Though we’ve had our hard times, certain phrases ring true: my parents always “wanted the best for me,” and they absolutely “made me who I am today. One winter, my dad, with help from a few neighbors, built an ice-skating rink in our backyard using a tarp, a garden hose, and some cheap lumber.

and some of the lakes are so clear and turquoise blue that you can see fifty feet or more to the bottom. To this day, he continues to work long hours, in the sun, on his knees, straining his back and refusing to quit.They wanted their kids to value that hustle and for us to see how hard they were working for what we had. Open the front door, and Brisco would run outside, grab the newspaper from the mailbox, and bring it back into the house. Chasten Buttigieg’s I Have Something to Tell You highlights how one person’s story and active engagement in fighting for change can be so critical in mobilizing others to see themselves in their future.

At Fish Camp, our usual fishing hole was a big, muddy, tree-lined riverbank; if you navigated the mud well, you could wade out into the slow-moving river all the way up to your chest. The sun would set, we’d build a bonfire and grill some fish, and Uncle Gene would drive out to camp to tell us scary stories about man-eating wolves, close encounters with bears, and the occasional camper-abducting alien.

Separated into two sections, 'Soft Truths' and 'Hard Truths' both comforted me and then reinforced some eye-opening epiphanies.They were also very strict about money, and whatever money we had to spend on ourselves was earned or saved from birthdays or special occasions. There was the time they almost started a forest fire because one of them had stepped on a ground nest of bees, gotten stung, and decided that they needed to go back to the scene of the crime with a gallon of gasoline and a blowtorch to seek revenge. Well written, an interesting plot, filled with suspense, family drama, great characters, secrets and twists. He Far more concerned with the why than the how, McDonagh expertly unpicks and reforms the tangled webs of a complicated family history in a page turning debut.
