This book will not disappoint you and is a MUST read for every troubled youth (and young adults) experiencing the “why me” challenges of life.
When I reached the last page -- I could not stop once I started -- I needed to rest. It was a bumpy ride, including a few expressions that I attributed to transcultural peculiarities -- could of rather than could have, moms versus mom's, barley and not barely, and a few others. I was left the feeling that I had read a testimony of how wretched a life can be, but that a ray of light may shine through.
As a former clinical psychologist I can attest that child abuse leaves such scars that most of the times the victim is rendered incapable of recovery, either physical or emotional. Though these signs remain, in this autobiography the message is clear: Once responsibility is assumed hope and actual life success us possible.
In closing, I have always believed that change is produced from one generation to another. Hoggs proved this by making sure that his next generation would produce no bastard children. A wonderful lesson.
Major Sean Hoggs is a true friend. To recommend this read to others is not simply to "support". The story of "The Bastard Child" is one that benefits your life. Why? You feel it in your body as if Sean (himself) is pushing you to live better.
