I have loved this book since the moment I read the first two sentences. The terrible story of Amelia's childhood is told beautifully, in a way that makes the reader moved, without being a pathetic story. A positive account of a very negative experience. But the story tells us not to give up, because everybody can fulfill their dreams if they really believe in them. This is the story of a child who was forced to grow up when her mum proved to be useless for the task of upbringing her own children. I really think it is a book that everybody should read, since it is a true inspiration for everyone. Well done, Dawn G. Torrens, you moved me to tears and your story helped to look at certain things under a brand new light.
