Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a heartbreaking, true story of a boy growing up in an abusive and dysfunction family. This isn't the most well written book but I can appreciate how hard this must've been to write and work through the memories.

Interesting Subject Matter, But Poorly Written
This book is poorly written, very choppy and more like a 'stream of consciousness' work than a book. The time frame bounces all over for no apparent reason. It seems like all sorts of bad things happened when the author was 4 years old, then it would bounce around again, another bad thing would happen when he was four – and the circle kept repeating. I know for a fact that a 4-year-old child in the late 1960s would not be going to confession! It does

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the Kindle Arc of Cubbyhole Kid by C.E. Joseph. Cubbyhole Kid is a very painful account of C.E. Joseph's abusive upbringing. He grew up in a household with an abusive, alcoholic father and a mother that wasn't strong enough to attempt to stop the abuse. His sister becomes as much of a guardian angel to him as she can, but also suffers abuse at the hands of her father. The hypocrisy of their father is evident in that he takes the family to church on ...more

First of all this is the saddest story I have ever read. The child in this book goes through the unimaginable and with every word you can feel the child’s pain. I cried towards the end because it just seemed like life was getting worse and worse. I love that this book shows how having caring women in your life can make all the difference. While this is the saddest story ever told, it ends with me just hoping for the best. This is an easy read and I read it in one sitting.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a heartbreaking account of really just one year in the life of the author. It is a short memoir and I was surprised when it was suddenly over. I was left wondering what happened next. But it is a worthwhile story and one I would recommend.
