Given the content of this memoir, I should have been emotionally moved.
I wasn't. This book barely skimmed the surface of a very troubling childhood in the foster care system.
The only emotions I felt were anger at the clearly broken system and the states that perpetuate this treatment of children.
I appreciated the authors honesty while recalling her attitude of distrust but she ended up coming across as snotty and ungracious. The delivery was kind of stiff and flat. It's too bad; this story could be so much more.
