Childhood on Fire ... by Talisha Hunter
Full Title: Childhood on Fire: My Journey from the Hell of Baltimore to High Water by Talisha Hunter
Hunter pens a grand memoir in Childhood on Fire: My Journey from the Hell of Baltimore to High Water. This is the first book of this author's that I've read. The title draws the reader in, and the story, a true story of the author's childhood, keeps the reader connected to the story. The story is heart filling and heartbreaking, but the narrator shows how she endured what obstacles came into her path, and how to overcome them. The story starts out with "She wants nothing more than to give love and to be loved unconditionally." Life can be inspiring, even with failures as well as successes, and this story is a good read to understand that other's life isn't easy, so it is relatable, and gives the reader something to strive for. I look forward to reading more by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
