I really do think every person has a story to tell. That's why I read the bios. Sometimes the stories are unorganized and poorly written. Not so with this one. The author tells her story well! She makes you remember when you were the same age and what you were doing then. She makes your heart sad for what no child should have to endure. A young girl growing up amidst the devastating impact of alcoholism, drug abuse, neglect, parental instability, abuse, and homelessness. You will feel her pain as she navigates her way through her life. A powerful true story of this gutsy child fighting for the life of herself.
