Sachi Parker is a gifted writer and I read the book in record time. I could not put it down. Her observations regarding her unique and sad upbringing were fascinating. Sadly, some individuals who experience damage by childhood abuse, continue to figuratively return to the "well" (family of origin) for sustenance. They are hoping for a satisfactory outcome which will never happen. Abusive adults who hurt children do not have the capacity to change their behavior (for them there is no Pay Off to do so). At the end of the book Sachi Parker hints that she has an idea that she has value by simply being who she is. Sachi, you are a delightful addition to this crazy world that we are all trying to make sense of.
