This is a powerful true story of one young girl's struggle to survive the state-care-system in the 70s and 80s. Amelia has just one wish, to make it through to adulthood and hold her destiny in her own hands. This is a harrowing true story, one of survival and human strength. Amelia has been tragically separated from all her siblings, never to see them again for many years.
She is moved from one children's home to another until finally, it's just too much for her to bear. Amelia starts to wonder about the peace and finality of her own death.
struggled to finish this book. strange narration and the story line was repetitive. didn't enjoy it at all.
A truly sad book. when you think Amelia's life is going to get somewhat normal, think again. well told about a disfuncial Mother, Amelia and her brothers. I will listen to the next book in the series.
it just captures you and you just can't stop listening! I can't wait to start the next book.
