Nobody's Child is a fabulous book depicting many of the aspects of mental illness and how to overcome obstacles in your own life. Marie Balter not only triumphed over her obstacles, but she was strong enough to recreate the horrific experiences of her life for us, the reader, in this fascinating book. This is truely my favorite book and recommend this book to any and everyone.
