Growing up can be tough, especially when your mother and your brother are manic-depressive--and you're a party girl. In Do Da Do Da Do Da Ditty, Joan Marie invites readers into her childhood and throws a party that is hilarious but oftentimes painful. Joan Marie's parents would scream and yell while she and her siblings cowered in an upstairs bedroom. Little Joan, always on a diet, used to feed her brother ice cream, thinking her cravings could be satisfied by simply watching him eat. As the years pass, Joan grows up, goes off to college, kisses lots of frat boys, and graduates. Still, something is not right in her life; something is missing. Joan Marie struggles through her own manic-depressive disorder and alcoholism. This book shows how she ultimately found a spiritual solution to her problems, finally discovering the peace and love she has been seeking throughout her entire life.
