About the Author

Shelley D Terrell lives in Eastern Oklahoma with her husband Ron, her ten year old son Damien and their Jack Russell Terrier, Milo. As a survivor of domestic violence, a former foster parent and a child advocate, Shelley personally understands the subject matter she writes about. Her experiences bring reality to her real life fiction novels and awareness to the out of control social problems of drug abuse, alcoholism, domestic violence, and child abuse. Because of her love for animals, she also has a wildlife rescue. Bat pups, vultures, squirrels, rabbits and deer are some of her most recent rescues. All animals are returned to the wild after they are successfully rehabilitated. To learn more about this author, connect with her on social media.

Shelley Terrell’s “Rag Dolls: Callie’s Story” provides a brilliant and brutally honest journey through the failures of understaffed and overstressed U.S. Child Protective Services. Callie has a secret that could – and almost does – get her killed.
Readers will find it easy to fall in love with the empathetic Callie and her loveable Grandmas. When her biological grandmother dies when Callie is only 10, a CPS worker snatches her away from the only home she has ever known – the magically beautiful Fountain of Youth Retirement Home – and deposits her with an abusive couple in a filthy maggot and mouse-infested house, declaring it is “in her best interests.”
Callie gets shunted from foster home to foster home, always “in her best interests,” even when it means separation from the one foster family she loves and trusts. At fifteen, Callie becomes the guardian of a secret that forces her to make a grim decision – run away or be killed. She runs.
The unexpected twist at the end of the story provides a bright note of hope and joy to release readers and send them on their way.

4.0 out of 5 stars descriptive 18 May 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was raised in the foster care system. I would say the description of life in foster care was sadly very accurate. The book was easy to read, other than a bit of re-telling the same accounts a couple different times. Some of the story line seemed unrealistic... like the fairy tale that a real foster kid might think up as they struggle to survive in torturous conditions. I think the grammar was well suited for making the story feel like it was written from a teenage point of view. I love the hankies in the bra. I can totally see that scene play in my head !
I didn't understand the ending. It almost seems to be expressing mental dysfunction from the main character, which would be totally understandable.

This story was very well put together. The people were very real. The transitions from Callie's now and her memories were well coordinated. It wasn't done abruptly so that you couldn't remember what the story was doing last. I would highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Callie's story 23 Jan. 2015
By Judy Manning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The horror of life in state's custody. These children must live in fear if there is a problem. It seems no one wants to hear the horrible stories. I have seen many children who had to live like this because no one would believe the truth. I'm so glad I was able to be there for my kids. God bless these poor kids.
