An Autobiography of a Foster Child

Healing a Hurt Heart and Soul

Poet and author D. Alexander Hoilday, maybe because he is also a poet, knows how to mine emotions, look at the nuggets, and evaluate.

Like the Naked City of old, there are thousands of foster child stories, all different, because people's experiences are never the same, even in the same household.

What makes Holiday's story so relevant, so poignant, so provocative and, most of all, so haunting? Holiday's storytelling style makes you remember long after you have read, makes bits and pieces come back and form thoughts you can't get out of your mind. Holiday lets himself hang out before you, feelings flying, emotions exploding and imploding at the same time.

Holiday takes you for an autobiographical ride you won't soon forget. It's Holiday's magic trick to get you to remember so he can forget.

The ISBN Number is 978-1-4500-5874-2.

Interesting. I like autobiographies, but tend to be picky about them. I am more inclined to read historical bios or autobiographies.
