Spilled Milk by K.L. Randis

I wanted to start with the published book description on this one:

Brooke Nolan is a battered child who makes an anonymous phone call about the escalating brutality in her home.When social services jeopardize her safety, condemning her to keep her father's secret, it's a glass of spilled milk at the dinner table that forces her to speak about the cruelty she's been hiding. In her pursuit of safety and justice, Brooke battles a broken court system that pushes to keep her father in the home. Spilled Milk is a novel of shocking narrative, triumph and resiliency.

My Review

Spilled Milk is a fascinating memoir about a young girl and her tragic upbringing. I truly had a hard time putting this book down. It was heartbreaking just hearing her story from a child's perspective.

It is my understanding that this book is from the personal perspective of the author, along with some creative fiction weaved in. If I'm wrong, please do let me know.

This shocking, but true story of domestic abuse is something everyone should read. It is very eye opening. It is a voice for anyone experiencing this type of tragedy who feels alone.

The story tells us how she navigated social workers, the court system, and her father's eventual incarceration. It is an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed and cried.

I highly recommend Spilled Milk to anyone who loves memoirs.
