Why am I still so bothered by it?

Let me set the scene, shall I?  One of my mother’s friends came for a visit, and she was in our den watching Outlander, one of my favorite TV shows.

Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One.

Before becoming America’s first ever network chief meteorologist or appearing on Dancing with the Stars, ABC News’s Ginger Zee checked herself into a mental health hospital.

Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One. is Ginger’s heartbreaking, hilarious, and harshly honest life story – from Dickhead’s (you won’t soon forget that name) deck on Lake Michigan to her storm-chasing dream at ABC News.

Ginger opens up about her lifelong battle with crippling depression, her romances that ranged from misguided to dangerous, and her tumultuous professional path. This cyclone of stories may sound familiar to some – it’s just that Ginger’s personal tempests happened while she was covering some of the most devastating storms in recent history, including a ferocious tornado that killed a legend in the meteorology field.

She also canceled her first wedding – twice – because she finally listened to her inner voice, which was saying This isn’t right, but then she happened to fall in love with her gay best friend. Yes, twice. Yes, gay.

On the sunny side, this book is for all the mistake makers who have learned to forgive others and themselves – even in the aftermath of man-made, or in this case, Ginger-made disasters. It’s a story that every young woman should read, a story about finding love in the world, and finding it in yourself.

I’m sorry, but I have to break a rule here, because I can’t be objective with this one.
