Etched in Sand This book put me through the wringer and I was just the reader Regina Calcaterra shares with us the brutal torcherous and horrendous abuse she and her 4 siblings endured at the hand of the mother Cookie Calcaterra I am not sure I have felt such intense hatred for a charachter in a book in my entire life She was a viscous narcissist who in no way should have been allowed to have children let alone five What is refreshing about this memoir is Regina Calcaterra s voice I believe her I ached for her I rooted for her and ultimately I respect her She never whined and made sure to care for her younger siblings as her older siblings did for her I thank Regina for highlighting the truth about our Foster system More so I respect her for immersing herself in helping others who are in the position she was in In the epilogue she eludes to the fact that she is encouraging Rosie to tell her story and I really hope she does These 5 siblings show us to be grateful and hold on those who love us One of the best lessons I have learned is to not waste your time crying over those you think SHOULD love you and focus on the people who DO love you I went Google crazy after reading this book and had to research everyone I will root on these people and keep them in my prayers This is an important and beautiful book

I don t know where to start this review other than to say this isn t a book for the faint of heart As a parent myself there were parts of this book that were really hard for me to digest because I don t know how a person could care so little for their child let alone five children I really struggled through parts of this book because you want to think that things can t get any worse but you know that they will and they do And it really just affirms my personal belief that you shouldn t be allowed to just have kids It s been proven that just because you can doesn t mean you should The story is basically the story of Regina and her siblings who have a mother who isn t just neglectful but she s also abusive in her moments of actually being there and these five kids are forced to become mini adults almost immediately Whether it s trying to make every stop a home searching for loose change stealing food and other items to get by and parenting each other it s heartbreaking What makes it worse is that you hope that child protective services would intervene but the kids don t want that because there is real danger in the foster care system And you periodically hear news stories of foster care gone wrong but Regina s story highlights that it is a much larger problem than we maybe recognize Some of the passages about the abuse her and her siblings sustained horrifying I mean I can t even imagine the level of rage a person must have to do such things to a child There are no words and uite frankly it s a miracle they got out of it alive I mean to do the abuse their mother did what was to stop her from going totally over the edge The best part about this book is Regina and her overall triumph over her childhood We all know a few people who have had a horrible childhood but instead of rising above it and recognizing that the past is the past they dwell Their entire lives are held back because it s all they can focus on They lose perspective of what they could still be the life they could still have the good that is out there Regina doesn t let her past get the best of her instead she pursued her education and became a successful adult a productive citizen a beacon to others who are currently in a horrible situation I absolutely loved this book though it was difficult to read and I did cry in a few spots I don t even know Regina but I am absolutely proud of her and just there are no words Check out her Twitter Facebook or website to learn about her and her book
