    1. This was NOT easy to get through and I don't mean because of the subject. It's the writing. It gives the feeling of slogging through heavy mud.She recounts some "good" times with her parents and almost talks, in those instances, like her life was just fine and in the next sentence goes on to the horrors. There's no meshing of the two totally opposite sides of life of this family.Another thing that bothered me a lot was her speech. I'm not from Ireland. Unless she wrote this with the intent of on [...]

    2. I started out loving thisd very sad to say I really hated the writing after a few chapters. Maybe it was her story, maybe it was that I felt she made some of it up. I am not sure. It does however deserve at least the 3 stars I gave it. Seems like she did her checking into the facts of her "state" files on the family. I wanted to love it just could not. I am not sure if she has another book out yet ir not but it seemed liked at the end the co-author was hinting at book 2 coming soon. I will NOT b [...]

    3. compulsive and heartbreaking memoir, feel so sorry for the victim, glimpses of hope are taken away too soon, a view hopeful and funny moments but tragic on the whole.

    4. I found this book very difficult to follow, the writing style was very disjointed, and confusing. Overall though it was a truly eye opening and inspiring story.

    5. It was a very interesting insight to her young life and her experiences through the care system. It gives an insight to how some children go through.

    6. Un témoignage émouvant et douloureux sur une enfance volée, où l'on constate avec stupeur un sacré dysfonctionnement des services sociaux concernés

    7. Excellent but sometimes harrowing account of a young girl's life in and out of the care system and how, in spite of all the odds, she survives and makes something of her life.
