really liked it

Read in February, 2000

In this book she struggles to take care of her son (alone). She had various jobs. I was amazed that her hired babysitter kept her baby night and day because she worked so much. She went to see her baby on her days off. At one point, she went home to see her mother, leaving her 2 year old with the babysitter. When she came back after a few weeks, the house was boarded up and the woman was gone with her child. She found him, luckily, and vowed to treat him differently after that. (From my notes 2-9-00)
