books R us
I'm trying to think of the last few books I've read, I've just read "Sickened" by Julie Gregory, interupting Anne Dunlop's "Pineapple Tart", but I can't remember what I read before that, I think it was hardback, this is going to annoy me now!|
Anyway "Sickened" is a real life tale about Munchausen by proxy, where the mum makes the daughter appear sick so she gets lots of medical tests, one of the mother's goals being to get her daughter a test involving open heart surgery. It's abit like Dave Pelzer's "A Child Called It" but what's intriguing is how the daughter breaks free from her mother and liberates herself from all the beliefs and burdens the mother has put on her.
What was most surprising is I read it in 5 days!
