Autobiography by Barbara Hanson A true story as seen through the eyes of a child, Against All Odds and Oddballs follows this horrific journey through adulthood. A dysfunctional marriage finally ends in divorce, and the second marriage of the same woman leaves her in another bad situation: running from a stalking husband. As the story unravels, family secrets are revealed for the first time, and one tragedy follows another. As a naive but courageous individual, she learns from her mistakes, which eventually shape and mold her into the person who she is today. Against All Odds and Oddballs is an honest and candid look at one persons life. The story gives the reader a new perspective on his or her own life and shows that we can rise above any circumstances. The strength at which the author moves on is admirable throughout the work.
