What a story!,
This review is from: Catch Me Before I Fall: Her Colour Made Her Different - The True Story of a Shattered Childhood (Hardcover)
In this book, there is a story of a childhood which would have scarred anyone emotionally. Despite this, the book is written without the "poor me" attitude which is so often seen. Rosie is honest and matter of fact about her awful start in life. This is the story of an incredible woman who has survived in spite of our Social Services and Mental Health Services Systems. There is a powerful message of hope, a valuable lesson for service workers (for we still treat the symptoms,not the cause of mental illnesses today) and above all, a story of triumph for Rosie. You won't be disappointed with this book. I wasn't.
