You aren't stupid. You know there's no such thing as a perfect mother. Plenty of other books will tell you there is, but this one won't lie to you. I was weak and I cheated and I was punished, but my god I loved my child through all of it. Love means you never break, and it means you're stronger than the things they do to you. I know this is true because I have been through fire, and I am the proof that love survives. I am not a perfect mother but I will tell you the perfect truth, because this is you and me talking. This is my story.

User Review  - Staceyj - Goodreads

This book does not need to be read while around others. It leaves you with your mouth gaping open looking like a fool because you're shocked at what you are reading. The narrator was real, raw, and to the point. You could feel her pain. Left me breathless at times. Read full review
