After having only finished listening to this book three days ago, I've started to listen to it again.
The author did an astounding job at capturing the emotions of an abused child. I was completely enchanted with the main character from the very beginning. In part because of the wonderful narration. This however, is not a feel good book. It is gripping, enlightening, and poignant, but it is also dark, and sometimes painful to listen to due to the subject matter.

This book is brilliantly written and read but to me it was scarier than the most gruesome works in the "horror" genre. Just a warning, if you are sensitive to emotional issues from childhood, reading this book may be difficult. It was certainly not an escape to a "nice read". It was hard for me. The story is compelling, as others have said, and the ending is hopeful but I had to pace myself and read it only when in a good place with my head. It just seems like the tip of the iceberg in terms of what goes on in families that make poor choices and then have children, and opens one's eyes to the plight of so many abused and under-resourced young people in this country.
