A sad and touching view of a lost childhood,
By A Customer
This review is from: Blackbird: A Childhood Lost (Paperback)
This book is a biography written through the eyes of a young girl looking at the the events and experiences of her life (mostly heartbreaking) from the age of 5. It is a devestating, disturbing but complelling look at her mistreatment by the adults around her. I found I was unable to put it down and read it and the sequel (Still Waters) in 3 days. I thoroughly recommend it.
