Andrea Jarrell received a stellar review from Library Journal Review.
Library Journal Review called I’m The One Who Got Away by Andrea Jarell, “Jarrell writes powerfully about coming of age in the shadow of domestic violence and her growth as a spouse, parent, and daughter. How she successfully navigated her responsibility to her children as well as her desire to know her father may be of interest to readers who wish to explore boundary-setting in their own families.” Read the full review here.
