Popular Ebook Somebody Else's Kids I devoured all works of Torey Hayden when I was a teenager and got horrified at the fact that there are some kids of the same age as me or younger who went through abuse or any other aggravated sort. Her books opened my eyes to the cruel side of the world and brought me outside of my comfort zone. And I just couldn't believe there are others who would shatter kids' hearts and lives, and the reality was just shocking to me. Yet, I was drawn to her story, cried and overjoyed with her and her kids in the story.I had a chance of revisiting her world since a member of my book club chose this book for the next read. I don't remember how many times I cried till I finished the book. My love for the kids grew as Torey's did, and I hope they're now doing fine somewhere in the world.
