A Child Called It: I have no idea HOW I made it through this book. It was incredibly rough and could only read it in small doses. This was required reading for my minor in Child & Family Studies and my Abuse Against Women and Children course. IDK if I could've read it of my own free will.
"Once you read it straight through and experience its immensity and depth, you can keep it around and dip into it when you need to be reminded that a work of art—novel, play, film, what have you—can give you not only continued enjoyment but profound truths." — Anne Rice
