Destiny's life hasn't always been this bad. There was a time when her mom loved her, there was a time when her mom seemed a lot less psycho. But things are bad now. Poor little Cassidy is only five yet is already used to being knocked around. She does not remember a time her mother loved her, because there never was a time. From day one she has been hated and abused. Her only sense of real love is her big sister, Des. Life continues on from day to day as there mothers darkness grasps them. But when will enough finally be enough?
With so many books about physical abuse out there we never seem to find one that surely shows both physical and emotional aspects of it. This novel had many parts that truly shocked me. How could a mother not love her baby? That is the mothers job in most of our families! This makes you realize that its out there but the people experiencing it are to good at keeping it quiet. Mental illness is a condition many Americans face daily, June, is an example of what happens when you are unwilling to get better. I would defiantly recommend this book to everyone. I do beleive we can make a difference in our friends lives if we read between the lines of abuse.
Bloggers note: If you or someone you know is being abused dont let it continue. I Know it can seem horrible to have your friend hate you for telling but it would feel a lot worse finding out they were killed.
