Scars is a book I just can not review. It is to emotional and touching, I could not do it justice.
Instead you should read Proud Book Nerd's review of it.
And while I may not fully relate this line to my mom. I just really got what she said and I could never put it this well.
I've stopped hoping that Mom'll be the way I need her to be. I just don't think she can. In fact, I've given up expecting anything from her at all.
And though there's such sadness inside me, there's a lot of relief, too. Because I know who I can turn to whenever I need comforting, help, or love. I know it won't be Mom, and I'm actually okay with it now.
