Product Description

Product Description

Originally written in a series of candid tweets, Head Buckets & Hashtags unfolds in tantalizing snippets of 140 characters or less. In turns amusing and harrowing, this gritty recounting of a childhood in the Alaskan “bush” captures Ms. Peska’s spirit of resilience as she copes with poverty, illness and abuse.

Each day at noon, for 15 days in March 2013, Ms. Peska took to Twitter and shared her story with “tweeps”. Now, in this short memoir, she’s sharing it with you!

There is so much in this book - the homesteading on a tiny island with little exposure to the outside world - the stepfather who never finished projects he began - the mental issues of the stepfather - suggestions of spousal and child abuse - fear. There is also so much left out of this book. I understand it would be tough to mine the story and I get it if Marcy does not choose to do it. But it was a good read that brought up a lot of memories - I also grew up on small island and we were poor.

HASH(0xa16f2d14) out of 5 stars Real Alaska story, by a real Alaskan, fantastic! June 4 2015
By akphoenix - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Intriguing and unique story, told in a unique way, which works well as a way of telling the story of Marcy's unique childhood. The contrast between the realities of growing up in bush Alaska, with it's basic lifestyle, and the original format of Tweeting used to tell the story is perfect. It is engaging, real, honest, succinct, gritty, and deals with tough life realities that far to many have to deal with, but in a way that is not self pitying or dramatic. This memoir shares what it is like growing up in very rural Alaska, touching on harsh realities, as well as the joy and pleasure to be found as well. I am impressed with Marcy's bravery and her writing. This is a wonderful book.

Format: Kindle Edition
Another of Peska's books - though this one is unusual. She speaks about her life in Juneau, Alaska, but in 140 characters or less. I would have thought harvesting a book from a Twitter stream wholesale might have been a bit lazy, but instead the character limit makes it feel like a conversation. I could actually see this becoming a template for other Twitter users for a variety of topics if given the chance. At $0.99 it's an interesting buy.
HASH(0xa1b570e4) out of 5 stars Just wonderful. April 26 2013

The unusual formatting of this piece (presented in its original form, as a series of 'tweets' about the author's rural Alaskan childhood) works well with the subject matter. Detailed but succinct, deeply emotional but never maudlin, this book provides a clear glimpse through the eyes of a courageous young woman coming of age in challenging circumstances. A must-read!
HASH(0xa12f0678) out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into Alaskan childhood Aug. 13 2013
By Geoff Bateson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book gives a fascinating, realistic and honest account of early life in a particular Alaskan family. Well written and bravely presented. Started life as separate Tweets on Twitter but carries over well into a book format. Well worth a read.
HASH(0xa1190558) out of 5 stars Interesting concept Dec 1 2015
By Kaydee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I think the concept attracted me more than the actual content or writing. Novel way to get a story across. Glad I got it when it was free however as it's real price seems ludicrous for something so short. Took me 20 minutes to read it.
