About this title

Synopsis:

When sixteen-year-old Sherry runs away from her abusive home, her struggle to find and maintain a safe, healthy life only deepens. Child Alone is a memoir recounting Sherry's emotional journey as a victim and survivor of childhood abuses. Through a hellish foster home, codependent marriages, and substance addiction, she fights depression and anxiety while working to maintain a semblance of normalcy and raise her own child in health and safety. As a child in an adult body-her inner child's problems still unresolved-Sherry pushes on, feeling alone, confused, lost, and noncommunicative-until she meets a doctor who can reach her and help her heal. It often takes a lifetime to come to terms with the past, but it can be done. Sherry's story is proof. Child abuse is not an old tale-it's not in the past and gone. The emotional damage haunts children who have been abused long into adulthood. The contributions they could have made to society are diminished, and their overall quality of life is chopped down. On some level we as a society know this, but astounding numbers of children are still suffering from abuse today-right now. This book constructs a bridge of understanding between victims, whose minds have been muddled by trauma, and bystanders who are healthy and able to help. Victims can transform into survivors, but they need help. It takes universal awareness of child abuse and dedication to change-today's children need it. The Foreword was written by the attending psychiatrist and the book has been endorsed by Dr. Jon Allen of the Menninger Clinic. Half the profits from this book are donated to CASA for Children.
