I also don't understand why her 2nd foster mom took her in if she did not want a teenage girl to begin with. Jerri and her 3 brothers are to stay in the coal room in there adoptive father's parent's house.This book is a must for foster children who may have thought that no one could ever understand, a must for educators who may realize that a student needs help, a must for social workers to read of people who have slipped through the cracks, and a must for children and parents to realize they have what others only dream of. The way the guidance counselor treated her made me shake my head. This story is about a young girl that writes letters to her mother that she has always wished to tell her. I would recommend this book to anyone and their hearts will be lifted. What did Jerri do in the end of the story to become who she is today? The mother dies in a trailer fire and the girl is sent to foster care. How can someone just have the heart to judge and neglect kids and not show any love and care there suppose to experience there whole life.
What did Jerri do in the end of the story to become who she is today? What she's trying to tell people is imagine how a kids life is when they don't parents or even family relatives who show love to them. Have the children write a letter to someone close to them and place them in a journal.
Her brothers also turn out ok. Jerri Diane Sueck's mother died in a trailer fire and there sent to there mother's husband parents where there hated just because they are not blood related except for the younger daughter Alice.
That said, the green copy will not lessen the emotional turmoil the reader will experience as Jerri recounts her life story.
Jerri is 18 and to old to be in the orphanage she moves out sent to live her life. To know what is happening around them and how to handle a situation.
