    kidlitexchange partner kidlitexchange Thank you for the opportunity to preview this free review copy that comes out in March All opinions are my own I absolutely devoured this book Coming from a family very similar to this, I can attest to the authenticity of Jane s thoughts and feelings The weight of Jane s situation is something that no kid should have to go through but has to all the time just the same Too many kids have unhealthy relationships with alcoholic parents and they never get the chance to see the light But Jane s story offers hope Hope that there are others out there like you Hope that things can change Hope that you don t have to be alone in your struggles and that sometimes it s best to tell the honest truth instead of the half truths that never give the full story I m so happy that Jane s story ended on the hopeful note that it did I have to admit, I was a little worried with what Jane s honest trut...
