I got this slim softcover from an online seller. It's a memoir by a survivor of the Canadian foster-care system, quite short and extremely harrowing...

My Review:
This book of Alexander Desmarais's first hand experience of the Canadian Foster care system offers a rare glimpse inside and the book was one I found that I felt glad of it's existence.

Mailed off today as a Tag book for the 2020 USA & Canada Wishlist Tag Game.

I found this book very sad. Such a disjointed mind. The writing reminded me of essays/journals/stories I’ve read that are written by prisoners. It’s sad that this kind of abuse happens and that this is how bleak the world seems as a result.
