Carla Lawton grows up in a house where there is no one you can trust, no one to witness the cruely that goes on behind closed doors. Living in the shadow of her older sister, who died as an infant, and her younger sister, Lily, who was the perfect parent pleaser, Carla tells of her life and her struggle to find the love and acceptance that she needs.

Not a "pretty" story, but an interesting one, nevertheless.

Sidenote - book was written by Patti Davis, daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. After hearing stories of how cold Mrs. Reagan could be, it made me wonder if any of this could be autobiographical!
