My Review

There truly aren’t enough adjectives to describe the emotions this writer portrays in this heart-wrenching memoir. This novelette really packs a punch.

Told through the eyes of a tortured soul, Quiroz-Vega takes you on the journey of Emma, starting with her lack of parenting, through the horrible atrocities brought against her, in an orphanage, filled with back-stabbing friends and out of control adults, then finally, to Emma’s solutions to the problems.

The imagery in this story is spectacular. This is a very dark tale, one I found so riveting, I could not stop reading it. I have to admit, there were times I was cheering for this poor child, and at the same time, admonishing her for not taking the proper course to solving her dilemmas. I won’t go any further, except to say, I highly recommend this book. This is my first read by Vashti Quiroz-Vega, but it certainly will not be my last!!
