Worth listening to.

The narrator was great. Great emotion in her voice. You would think that the author would have went into more when it came to the relationship the girl had with her mother and how unstable she must have been to forgive such a thing and even blaming it on her own child. The story lacks that disturbing feeling you'd get like with a similar story like Precious. But then again,this happens everyday all over the world. The stories aren't always as violent but I bet they don't feel different to the victim. Overall it is a good listen and by the end you feel proud of the girl for being so brave. Very rewarding ending. Hope that doesn't ruin it for you!

The book was great!

Over all it didn't meet my expectations. The story wasn't as good as the sample made it out to be. But I actually really ended up liking it! I really didn't see the ending coming and it was a great shocker! Although the narrators voice is a bit annoying.
