The memoir whips along, hardly taking breath...What makes Never Give in to Fear shine is MacGibbon's ease with her story. She doesn't apologize for who she is, and she doesn't try to win over the reader. It's just the facts, ma'am, and by the time the first chapter is over she's already on a roll. Honest to a fault, in ruthless pursuit of the story, MacGibbon's memoir is captivating from the very first sentence. MacGibbon has written--and lived--her way through a forbidding place. It's wonderful to not only read her story, but to know that she has flourished in her years of recovery. A memoir that offers hope, even in the worst of times, Never Give in to Fear is a terrific read. It's the perfect book for a reader in recovery, though MacGibbon's real-life adventures will be equally appealing to anyone who needs a little more adrenaline in their reading list." -- (Claire Foster) "It's amazing that Marti MacGibbon survived her harrowing life and had the guts to recount it...not too preachy, the author's candor and sense of humor keep the pages turning." -- Suzanne Daly, the bohemian.com
