Found this story too short and filled with gramatical errors and spelling errors. Not enough detail. Felt as if the story was rushed leaving no explanations to the plot of the story.

It was a good book. I still wish it was longer and didn't end the way it did!

This is a gripping reality told by the daughter of a very dysfunctional family. Is a true account, I think. If not it very well could be.

Although this book was short it is a very good book. It gives you a look into the life of what some of these kids in todays world go through and have no control over. I only hope that those who see these kinds of things report them to the proper people so the children can be helped.

It wasnt bad. Took me a half an hour to read, very short. I feel like they could have gotten into more detail but I dont feel as if I wasted my time or anything.
