12 I Am Not My Brother's Keeper

I Am Not My Brother's Keeper

Amelia Bradford | Drama

Rating:

Warning for those that want a happy Thanksgiving read. This is a sad, true story about children hurt by their own parents. It's about not doing the easy thing, the common thing, and turning away, and it's about the long, hard, expensive fight to do what's right. It's a success story, too, (if that's the right phrase) about a family torn apart, about parents prosecuted and jailed and children given another chance.
