A Worthwhile Lesson
on 17 December 2015
I must be frank and say this is not a book I would normally have chosen to read. I downloaded it from an Amazon prompt and began to wonder why I was reading what amounted to a lot of girly stuff laced with a bit of soft porn. Then it became clear that within the light and rather narrow setting was a substantial and well written novel exploring the tragic world which somehow we know about but ignore. The world in which young children get a rough deal which destroys their own lives as well as the lives of those with whom they later entangle.
A tour de force which has made me think, at one level harrowing but at another full of hope; hope that as a society we can do better than this. The author showed courage and ingenuity to communicate her message. I am glad she did and I admire her for it.
