I recieved this along time ago and just put it off, eventually as a bid to get 2014 off to a good start, i hit the review pile and got going. This is a story of a pretty much unloved child, now i went through a phase of reading all the horrible abuse books ie; a child called it, the kid ect ect so i thought this would be similiar. That is not true, this is essentially one womans story of her life, its written as though she is narrating it to you, almost like it would be perfect for audiobook. I didnt enjoy this persay, but more found it interesting. I wouldnt say read this for a story, but sometimes its nice to look at other peoples lives.
