“Daddy… can’t we come with you when you leave this time?”
When Michelle asked to be taken away from her abusive mother, she never expected to lose everyone she loved in the process. They said they would keep her and Kenny together. Her daddy said he would be back. And she never even got to say good-bye to Marcie.
All too soon, they were trying to reunite her with her mother, and Michelle is forced to take to the streets, seeking safety in the gang life.
Something about [P.D. Workman’s] writing just blows my mind… I hate when I get too tired to read anymore and I have to wait until the next day.
It’s a heart-breaking story.
