What a life Jeremy Collier has lived through. As soon as I started reading this book, I found myself immediately drawn in to a boys unbelievably disturbed childhood. My heart ached as I read through incident after incident of the child abuse he endured. The author did perfect job of painting such a clear picture of the things he went through, places he lived and the people who surrounded him. Jeremy's story brings great hope and inspiration to anyone who has had to overcome the unthinkable. He not only "made it out alive"...he has excelled in many areas. He has a bright and happy future ahead of him with the people who love him most and he now calls family. Blood isn't always thicker than water!
