Like Family: Growing Up in Other People's Houses by Paula McLain

posted Jul 2, 2017, 9:26 AM by Nikki Cruse
Follow Paula, Penny, and Teresa on their journey from Granny's to various foster homes. Left by what most would call deadbeat parents, these girls bounded from family to family. Paula gives us a peek into their lives, to the uncertainty foster children face even today. With what seems like a very honest reflection of her experiences, she shares both pleasant and gut-wrenching stories about her childhood. I appreciated her honest reflection of her final foster family and of her mother. Do we ever really know what someone keeps inside? How hard is it to separate yourself from a situation and look at it objectively. She explores those issues in this memoir.
