I won this through Goodreads First Reads.Wow. Just wow. To say reading this story makes me grateful for my family, would truly be an understatement. I enjoyed reading this story, and at the same time I didn't. As the pages turned, things went from bad to worse for Amelia.

Some people are just lazy to take care of themselves and want to leech of others and their goodwill. And you also get some people that can’t even take care of themselves or anyone else for that matter but keep on making babies because according to them, “someone out there” will feed their children for them as they do not need to ...more

usually when brothres and sisters have fights it doesnt go that extreme but afater reading this book it got me thinking. amalie really like her brother adam but he took advantage of that. he did what every older brother sister or brother would do for their little ones but he.. did not appreciate it. he would verbally abuse her for what rightfully belong to her.

The was a great book! The story was very sad, but I believe she came out on the other side a stronger person. It is hard to believe these children went through what they had to go through. I hope they come out of this stronger too.
