My Sore Hush-A-Bye Review

My Sore Hush-A-Bye
Renata F Barcelos
Publishing Date: November 2, 2012


Book Description: 

Camille is a young girl stuck in the past. Classic TV shows, old music, and dresses that never made it into the 21st century.

After her mother left a puzzling note leaving her in the care of Uncle Bob, she had a rough go of it, not wanting to conform to his rigorous rules and this new life. But she learned. She learned to love and accept her sheltered life.

That all starts to change when Camille finally goes to public school once she reaches her teenage years. She meets a friend who mysteriously disappears. She has suspicions that Uncle Bob may not be the perfect man she once thought. She starts thinking about her mother.

Most important of all, she begins to grow up, and that is what changes everything...


My Thoughts:


‘My Sore Hush- A -Bye’ I was one of those books I could read in one sitting, if I had the time course. Which currently real life is really getting in the way of my reading habits, so it took me a little bit longer to finish. However, this was such an amazing book. Renata really has rare writing talents. This book made me cry, I loved that it was told from the girls point of view so that you could really see how everything affected her. You could really grasp just how deeply she was victimized, how she couldn't even like a normal human being with think because of the things that had been done to her. Almost like Stockholm's syndrome but until the end, she didn't know she was the victim. It was such a sad story. But unfortunately things like this happen more often than we'd like and this book gave us insight into the damage it causes in the victim's mind.


Hopefully Camille’s story can help other people that have been victimized realize that they can move on. They can recover and be okay and I hope that this book really opens people eyes to see what really is going on outside and to pay attention to the signs because there are so many children out there that need help and don't get it because people do not know what to look for.

I think were not does amazing work, her writing is just phenomenal and I think she is just a great person all around and her writing goes much deeper than just writing the book. She has a much bigger purpose for why she writes the stories that she writes. ‘My Sore Hush- A- Bye’ is a book that you absolutely have to read it would just blow your mind and make you really think about this world and the people in. So please take the time out and check this book out and check out this author. It means a lot to me. I know I don't normally say that, but this one definitely hit home.
