As a parent, I imagined my children in situations that the author had endured. Due to that, I was unable to get through the book. It was too hard to wrap my mind around. I don't turn a blind eye to situations like these, but it was just too much all at once.
Inspirational story. Incredible heroine. Great narrator. Adult material: deals with the realities of the 1970's foster care system, rape, drugs, violence, and gangs. But the light at the end of the tunnel is so bright. Loved it.
This story was shocking, funny, heart- wrenching and endearing. I laughed, cried, felt angry, sometimes all within a couple of paragraphs. Her story is a great example of God's mercy and love for His people.
Yes. This book brings you in and doesn't let go. It's a terrible train wreck that you can't help yourself from watching. But it is also a book of redemption. One of the most inspiring stories I've ever read.
The obstacles, one after another that she tackles and struggles with. It is amazing to see the strength of her spirit.
Absolutely. You cannot walk away from this!
