This review is from: Catch Me Before I Fall: Her Colour Made Her Different - The True Story of a Shattered Childhood (Hardcover)
I felt as if I was reading a magazine article to be honest, I didn't like the story at all. I usually love to see how someone has gone thru the sh*t and ended up smelling of roses, but she didn't really, I just wish her the best in her quest for happiness and hope that therapy will one day teach her that changing her name will never make her happy, it has to come from within.
The ending of this book was dire..as if she were witholding that one piece of information to keep all readers hooked - when for me I had pretty much guessed that she was sexually abused she just confirmed my suspicions. Not very well written and strangely scandalous. I think she should have started when she realised that she was sexually abused because I would have been interested to learn how she dealt with having her childhood stolen from her.
I wish her a lot more luck in the future.
