God Help The Child by Toni Morrison a must-read for EVERY parent, as well as for anyone, who desires to be a parent in the future. I read this book in one day. I couldn't put it down. The main theme throughout the entire text surrounds how parents can destroy a child or how adults take advantage of children. Every parent should read this book. Morrison takes current events and add to her plot. I was so not disappointed. This book is definitely a favorite of mine. Just wow!
