This book literally cut me to the core. I don't know if I can even put just how moving of a book this was for me into words. As I read this it really did put into perspective for me that your past can help determine your future especially when you do not deal with something. Although I never went through what Sparrow went through it got me thinking about my own life as well and what demons I might be letting affect today and my future.
Sparrow is a dance who lives with her dad and aunt. Her mom died when Sparrow was young. We do not know much about Sparrow's mom until about the last third of the book. After a brutal assault Sparrow lets that eat away at her and start to destroy her because she believes she has to be silent. Everyone around her hopes that she will confront what has happened so that she can finally be set free.
