Sequoya was neglected, abused, starved, and malnourished. Amazingly she survived the turmoil of her past. With parents who cared more about their next hit of Crack Cocaine than the well being of their children, it is amazing Sequoya is still in her right mind. She cried out for help; while everyone including friends and family turned their back. Her own mother threw her for a loop when she placed her daughters' lives on the line for the love of a man who hung her out of a three story window. Going to school was her only peace until her classmates made her life a living hell. School officials and The Child Welfare Administration ignored the signs of abuse and believed the lies that were fed to them. Surrounded by rape, lies, drugs, and alcohol, Sequoya cries out to someone she never knew. She was told never to talk to strangers, but a stranger saved her life.

This Book was a very real read because this story is a lot of people story just not being told because many feel no one cares. Children are abused daily and because no one talks the kid is labeled bad or has ADHD... I worked in the system and some children leave abused homes to be abused by foster families sad but true.. Ms. Willis I truly appauled you for telling your story and cannot wait to read the Saga. The book did and will trigger many emotions however it will help you to read between lines if a child seem different and your gut is saying get help for a the child at least ask question but trust your gut and get involved I did a many times while working in the Foster Care system and becaused I trust my gut I saved a lot of children because I knew my story may not be the same however abuse is abuse... So like Ms. Willis speak up... I am recommending this book to Foster Care Agencies for workers and foster parents.... Thank you
