This book is beyond magnificent.I felt every ounce of pain that she felt in her life through this memoir. It's about this girl whose mother dies giving birth to her. She one other sister and three brothers. Throughout her childhood she is neglected and picked on by her siblings. Her father remarries and her stepmother makes sure that all of the children are out of the picture. She's basically what a usual stepmothe is like, controlling. Her father is blindfolded and he rarely is there for his children.
This book was amazing. It's a must read and it will truly captivate you. Adeline's emotions are pouring out of the book.
