The Big Mistake Club

Several reviews off Amazon for The Big Mistake Club;
This book touched me personally because it was written so well. I fell in love with every character and wanted them to succeed. The hard part for me is I know this kind of stuff really goes on. I was a foster parent for many years. I ended up adopting one of my foster children. He came to me beat up and more. Donna made this book so real and made you want to step in and save and love each one of them. Without giving too much away, I will say that I also fell in love with the old lady. She was my hero and a true Angel. The book keeps you turning the pages and you do not want to put it down. I may have not agreed with everything that happened in the story, but that didn't take away from Donna's fabulous writing. You will be hooked from page one until the end. I can't recommend this book high enough. Such talent.
Tragic story about the reality of abuse, neglect, and the consequences that occur because of them. The "mistakes" all grew up in situations that robbed them of their youth and innocence. The story centers around the ups and downs, trials and tribulations of their teen years and how their friendships helped them survive their hardships. I cared for the characters deeply and was affected by some of the tragedy that occurred throughout the book. A very haunting story that will stay with you after you finish...
