    "Abuse and neglect are truly the gifts that keep on giving", a quote from the book and a sad, sad reality. This book is amazing. My only complaint is I wished it was longer! Maranda gives us a clear view of how foster kids see the world and though it's painful to read, it must be talked about. I admire Maranda so much for being a foster parent and for bringing this topic to the table. The poems are so heartbreaking...These kids deserve to be heard and loved! I recommend this book to everyone! A definite must read!!!

    Oh, what a beautiful albeit heartbreaking book! A collection of brief poems, it really tugs at the heartstrings. I have been aware of the plight of the foster child (as well as the foster parents) for quite some time now, but reading about their daily lives and their true emotions almost brought me to tears. I can't even imagine what it feels like to either be a foster child or take one into my home, but the author does a wonderful job of educating the public by making it painfully obvious just how difficult their lives can be.
