I bought this book, only cause my library did not carry it. It was a hard read at first trying to figure out a few of the words she was trying to say. It was very sad, but I feel the book could have been alot longer and told more of a story about all the characters...I really want to see the movie, and I hope it fills in the story line more. Borrow the book from a friend or check it out at the library. It was not worth the price I paid for it.

    Don't mix with alcohol!

    The fact that this book is based on true story makes it even more heartbreaking. This book shows how marginalized some members of society can be. Everyone failed this child. The school system, the social welfare system, hospitals, doctors, nurses everyone. With that said, the novel is a graphic description of that failure. The writing style is easy to read and very good at making you feel as if you are watching the dialogue instead of reading it. 5 stars for that! However if you are at all depressed or have an attack of the "woe is me's" this is not the book for you! Very unrelatable characters. I finished the book thinking, "This can NOT be based on a true story." Quick read.
