Orphaned, abused, rejected, and forgotten, young Cupcake Brown could have become a casualty of a gravely flawed child welfare system. However, anyone who listens to this riveting audiobook will hear the voice of a strong, clear-eyed survivor tell an unforgettable story of innocence lost and success found. Brown narrates her memoir with candor and irresistible appeal as she reveals the horrors of addiction and the cruelties that a child can suffer. Despite the gravity of Brown's story, her voice is far from self-pitying or preachy. Instead she paints an ultimately inspiring portrait of herself, and that person is one any listener would want to get to know. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
