Jasmine's life was never good. It was the kind of life you see in the movies or on television. No one would ever believe people lived this way, but Jasmine did. She got herself to school, took care of her younger sister and her mother. Jasmine was the adult. Living in filth, garbage and tons of other stuff, Jasmine knew from a young age the difference between right and wrong. She may not have known why, but she knew more than her own mother. Left alone, left with just anyone who would keep them and in dangerous situations, Jasmine was always the protector. Who protected Jasmine? No one.
Powerful and heart wrenching, this story will shake you to your core. I dare you to read it and not cry or get angry. It's not possible! This book gives yet another reason why people wanting children should possess a license. I cried, I got angry and I wanted to just wrap Jasmine in a hug. I recommend this book to everyone. It's written honestly and in great detail. I applaud Jasmine Bath for having the courage to put it in writing. Hurrah for Jasmine's bravery and strength. She developed both on her own!
I found no issues with the writing. I found tremendous issues with the lifestyle Jasmine endured.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 cheers because I know others who suffered similar abuses and couldn't bring themselves to say anything.
