Summary
Faith Emily Hansen narrates her life from age five to eighteen in this gritty but often funny novel about family, mental illness and addiction. All Faith wants is to be loved, to have a stable home and to live without the darkness that led her to heroin addiction and a life on the street. The story starts at the end, as Faith appeals to other kids battling their own issues. She tells them that there is hope and that she herself was pulled back from her ledge by an unlikely champion: the sister who drove her to the streets in the first place
Summary
Living in a dysfunctional family, Faith resorts to drugs, which seems to keep the Darkness at bay, but leads her to live on the street. The determination to find love and comfort that lures Faith to drugs is ultimately what can drive her to recover.
