Fantastic book meant for the mature reader. This is the story of an illerate girl who is molested by her father and bears two children because of it. It is told from her perspective, including through her broken grammar. The story is one of her growth and change and determination to survive. I liked it a lot because it doesn't go down the road you'd expect where it ends all perfectly with the "rags to riches" type story. This is a very different read! If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, I recommend this.

Great book for anyone who likes the gritty reality of some women's lives. It's raw and disturbing but not without hope. Be prepared to be angry, shocked, sad and enlightened. Great writing.

Shocking but riveting story of an inner city girl's abuse and education. I read this in one sitting, and months later it still haunts me.
