Somebody's Someone

( 10 )

Overview


This remarkable memoir shines the light on the plight of children with no parent to wake them up with a gentle kiss, to send them off to school with a packed lunch, to read them a bedtime story as they fall off to sleep. These are nobody's children who, due to their circumstances, are rarely able to climb out of the shadows of society, instead left to fend for themselves in an inhospitable world. But while Somebody's Someone exposes the extreme trials these children endure, it is also a triumphant story of how ...

Overview


This remarkable memoir shines the light on the plight of children with no parent to wake them up with a gentle kiss, to send them off to school with a packed lunch, to read them a bedtime story as they fall off to sleep. These are nobody's children who, due to their circumstances, are rarely able to climb out of the shadows of society, instead left to fend for themselves in an inhospitable world. But while Somebody's Someone exposes the extreme trials these children endure, it is also a triumphant story of how one young girl makes it out alive. Never before has the voice of an abandoned child been so perfectly rendered, intimately captured, and lovingly portrayed. With Somebody's Someone, Regina Louise emerges as an extraordinarily gifted writer whose voice is filled with raw emotion, shocking honesty, and pure lyricism.

    more from this reviewer

    WOW!

    I met the author of this book about a year or so ago and since, I have read her book. The mere fact that she exists today is a testament to what is possible. I simply love Regina and wish her much success as an author/speaker and a TRUE child advocate for those caught and or lost in the foster care system. I am so excited to know that her story has been optioned for development at LIFETIME television network!!!! If the author ever reads this, I sure hope that she keeps on going with her dreams. Lastly, but not least, this book should be required reading for anyone who thinks having a child by default of is the right way to usher an innocent human being into the world. This is a book that is not to be missed.

    Oustanding read

    This book was absolutely a must read. Regina shows that people can rise above their circumstances and become a productive member in society. This book made me cry, but it is a story that must be told. I can't wait to see her one woman show in Sacramento in 2007. Regina, you make us all proud!

    'Regina Louise Made It'

    Regina made this book for all those who was once in care everything she's saying about the system and how she had to live is true Because I was once a foster child for 18 long hard years and now I make my own rules and i'm doing just how Regina did making it in life.

    incredible - should be mandatory for politicans

    Though Ebonics at times makes it difficult to follow, SOMEBODY¿S SOMEONE is a tremendous in your face true account of a neglected child that should be mandatory reading for anyone running for public office or serving in social services. Perhaps with a Regina Louise to guide decision makers, we could improve outcomes, not just change inputs and outputs to pretend helpful progress. Ms. Louise tells her biography in an honest gut wrenching way starting when her mama dumped her when she was eleven. From there she spends the next few years buried in the abusive foster care system. Over the years Regina is bounced either among her uncaring and or abusive blood family or foster family. Though all the young Regina desired in life was to be 'wanted and special¿, she ultimately learned to misbehave as her self-defense mechanism until a special shelter worker gives her what every person needs: love. <P>When you read an account like Regina Louise, one does not need fiction for an angst laden book. Her traumas will leave no one dry eyed as it hits home. Most interesting is the paradigm switches that people will make if they listen with an open mind. Ms. Louise provides a deep from the heart reality check from an insider¿s look at unwanted children. Perhaps the only problem with this memoir is readers will have to wait for part two to be published. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Somebody's Someone is Phenomenal

    Somebody¿s Someone by Regina Louise defines Resilience, Hope, and Love. It ignites our Compassion. It eloquently teaches us to be grateful for what we have. Regina's perfectly sculpted sentences contain penetrating imagery. I felt compelled to hug and nurture the precious heroine. I gained strength from her strength. Regina¿s insight on human nature is remarkable and offers a perspective that gives trials of life a new, profound meaning. Regina¿s masterpiece will inspire millions in our global family. Regina teaches us that Love and being somebody¿s someone profoundly impacts one¿s path. Our world is a better place because Regina is here. She co-founded the Esther Collins Memorial Children¿s Foundation for Literacy. My wish is that those touched by Regina will contribute to the success of her foundation. Regina's passion is to help others soar, and she does. Thank you Regina, you are a beautiful soul.

    Too Good To Keep To Myself

    Somebody's Someone: A Memoir

    Somebody's Someone is one of the best books I've read in years! I felt like I was the main character. I can't remember a book that I just didn't want to end. I will keep this little girl in my heart forever. Thank you Regina Louise, you have touched my heart.
