    Amazing but sad

    The book made me think I really do not have it all that bad after all. It made me cry when it told the details about her geting beat and basicaly raped. I would never ever wantto be treated like that, that was horrible to hear how thi women treats these kid after all he have been through. When I becomea mother I will never treat my kids he way this women id no matter how mad at them I maybe. Over all it was an amzing book. Just to think how hardit musr have been for Abbie to live like this.

    Strongly recommended

    A very sad story of survival despite the odds. I could not believe that a mother or any woman for that matter could treat a child in such a horrible way. I cried throughout the reading. A child is a gift from God and his innocence must be protected at all times.
