A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Stacey Patton penned this moving memoir describing her tumultuous childhood growing up first in a state institution and then in a fractured foster family. She makes a strong case to illustrate how the brutal legacy of slavery continues to affect African-American families today. "...a document...striking in its endeavor to relate a unique individual experience to broader communal life." –Kirkus Reviews
