This Will Only Hurt a Little Reviews
It so pains me to not give this book 5 stars, but I'm going to be honest about it because I think Busy would appreciate that. Mostly, I feel this book made me not relate to her in a way that's so different from watching her on Instagram.

Honestly, this isn’t your average memoir. She takes you through the highs and lows of her life, no holding back.
