Summary

In Ginger Zee's follow-up to the best-selling Natural Disaster, the ABC chief meteorologist takes listeners on a much deeper journey of self discovery.

When Ginger Zee opened her life to listeners in Natural Disaster, the response was enormous. She put a very relatable if surprising face on depression and has helped lessen the stigma surrounding mental health issues. But Ginger tells us, Natural Disaster was "Ginger Lite" and only scratched the surface. 

In this moving follow-up, Ginger shares her truest self. She spent most of her life shielding her vulnerabilities from the world all while being a professional people pleaser. Her stormy childhood, her ongoing struggles with crippling depression, her suicide attempts, and many other life experiences will resonate with listeners who are likely to see themselves along the way. 

In spite of its serious subject matter, Ginger's positive, life-affirming outlook comes through loud and clear. Written with great heart and quite a bit of humor, Ginger normalizes issues and challenges millions of people face every day. A Little Closer to Home will broaden the conversation around mental health at a time we need it more than ever.

Ginger is open truthful and supportive

It’s so hard to deal with depression and anxiety alone. Add in being drugged and taken advantage of more than once and an abortion that still haunts you and anyone would have an incredibly hard time surviving forget thriving.

Ginger shares what she’s been through beyond her first book. I was near tears many times while listening to the audiobook and thinking how close the world came to losing an amazing woman.

Thanks to Ginger for sharing her story and reminding us that we aren’t alone.

Good book except for the expletives..not needed.

This book would have been exceptional except for all the nasty expletives that lent nothing to the story not needed to tell her story.
