i quit and i am ok with it

I was trying to read a book that came highly recommended. I was trying to get past the yucky, yucky doom I felt in the pit of my stomach as I read each page. I mean, I knew the storyline. I heard the author speak and I had googled the case. I just couldn't do it. The story hit too close to home. Saw too many familiar faces in those pages. Too scary to think that a mom could have a son and loose him to the streets before he is even a teen. So, I quit. I am sure that others may not receive the book in the same way that I did and I am ok with that. I quit so I would not have to have those words etched on my soul.

Have you read this book? Thoughts?


  1. I haven't read it and don't know the case... but I would be interested in reading it.

  2. The story is compelling.....I can see why it touched you....I will put it on my list of books to read
