After reading this book, I was moved is so many ways. My mental state was so jolted, the only reaction that I could muster were tears of pain. The suffering endured by an innocent little girl, who was ridiculed for her very existence, has such profound, life altering meaning. The very breath that she took was scorned by her own mother. The color of her very skin was revolting to the social eyes that surrounded her world. She knew of no bliss in her life. Her own self image had been dragged through the alleys of mental dilusion. Her only way of becoming loved and accepted was to become something that not even God could now change. After the physical taunting, the emotional beatings and the pschological distortions, her true salvation had come in the form of insanity. She was now and would always remain "Shirley Temple", with her "Bluest Eyes".
