a girl of a different colour,
This review is from: Catch Me Before I Fall: Her Colour Made Her Different - The True Story of a Shattered Childhood (Hardcover)
Rosie didn't realise she was a differnt colour to her siblings at first. In fact after a day at a friends house the friends mother found then both in the bathroom with Rosie trying to scrub the dark colour off. Of course it didn't work. Ill-treated and separated from her siblings in the kids home Rosie starts to think that everything that happens is deserved and her fault, so begins the start of the circle of self harm and depression but she manages to come out at the other end as an adult without self-pity. A great book and an unputdownable read.
