Summary
What happens to a child when her own parents reject and abandon her? At birth, Regina Louise is deposited by her mother in a foster home where she grows up with the constant specter of severe beatings and other harrowing abuses. But at 10 years old, this extraordinarily bright and resilient child strikes out on her own. Set adrift, she re-encounters her mother, who chooses the men in her life over her daughter's safety, and is then foisted upon a father she has never known, who is at first indifferent and then emotionally abusive. She inhabits over 30 foster and group homes in her painful quest to be loved. Distinctive and arresting, Regina's story offers a scalding look at the life of a child no one wanted-and her discovery of the love that for so long had eluded her
Summary
A foster-care child recounts her abandonment by her parents, her victimization at the hands of more than thirty abusive foster caretakers, her rediscovery of her dysfunctional birth parents, and her ongoing quest to find love and acceptance
