Description

"Growing up with a mother suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and a mostly absent father, [poet] Nikki Grimes found herself terrorized by babysitters, shunted from foster family to foster family, and preyed upon by those she trusted. At the age of six, she poured her pain onto a piece of paper late one night--and discovered the magic and impact of writing ... In this ... memoir [in verse] that will resonate with young readers and adults alike, Nikki shows how the power of those words helped her conquer the hazards--ordinary and extraordinary--of her life"--Publisher marketing.
