Flashback Friday

On Fridays I'm Going To Be Posting Books That I've Read In The Past. These Will Be Books I Enjoyed And Highly Recommend!!

My First Flashback Book Is America by E.R. Frank.

America

Synopsis

You try not to think. You try not to imagine, but then those cracks pop up, and these flashes squeeze right through. At first, some of it's not too bad, and you get stupid, maybe even wanting a little more, but then you pull yourself together, knowing what all is likely going to ooze out if you're not careful....

Fifteen-year-old America has been nowhere, has been nobody. Separated from his foster mother. A runaway. A patient. Without love. Without hope. And, eventually, without the will to live.

Until Dr. B. steps in. To listen. To explore. And to find within America both the story and the boy who are lost.

This Book Blew Me Away. I Was Only 13 When I Read This Book. It Shows The Endurance Of A Young Boy Growing Up. This Book Deals With Child Abuse, Disturbing Behavior, And America's Journey From Being Lost In This World And Lost In Himself. If You've Read Cut by Patricia McCormick Then This Is A Book You've Got To Read...

On February 28, 2009, A Film Adaptation Of America Was Given On Lifetime. The Film Is A Little Different From The Book, But They Always Change Things When Making A Film. Nonetheless, I Guarantee Before The Credits Roll You'll Have Shed A Tear Or Two...

I Hope You Enjoy My Flashback Friday. I Can't Wait To Share More With You...

If You'd Like To Order This Book You Can Do So By Visiting Barnes And Noble Here
