The other reason this book was difficult to read was the uneven narrative structure I m not sure if it was a translation issue but several times I would need to reread sections to try to understand what I had read Additionally she would bring up people she had only briefly mentioned earlier without reminding the reader who they were, which I found confusing Lastly, I found as a reader not familiar with Danish institutions, I needed a littleinformation She tells us she is put in an orphanage Both of her parents are alive but they are neglectful so this seems the best option Later she mentions she is embarrassed at the orphanage because they are hosting Parent s Day and all the parents show up except hers I needunderstanding as to how Danish orphanages work Why are all the parents showing up Why are they putting their children in the orphanages if they are capable of showing up I need background information This is just one tangent but there were a few times I was confused Her story is dark It reminded me thematically to The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls or Educated by Tara Westover but overall the writing was a bit clunky I gave it 3 stars.This book will be published

Willful, And Exceptionally AngryFrom Hell To Liberation, This Is Lisbeth S Emotional And Galvanizing Memoir Told In Two Voices That Of A Young Girl Who Was Unwanted, Challenged, And Defiant, And That Of A Woman Who Channeled Her Rage Into A Positive Force As A Passionate Advocate For Children S Rights Whatever Darkness Defines The Past, It Can Be Used To Change The Future Lisbeth S Heart Wrenching And Ultimately Uplifting Journey Is Proof This is a difficult read as this is the recollection of a childhood of mental, physical, sexual abuse combined with fairly severe neglect mainly due to her mother s relational instability, generational poverty and alcohol abuse I had nearly decided to not read it as it came in on inter library loan, then the corona lockdown happened and the book sat for three months at the local branch It was finally made available yesterday, and I found that once I started reading it was difficult to put down This is a difficult read as this is the recollection of a childhood of mental, physical, sexual abuse combined with fairly severe neglect mainly due to her mother s relational instability, generational poverty and alcohol abuse I had nearly decided to not read it as it came in on inter library loan, then the corona lockdown happened and the book sat for three months at the local branch It was finally made available yesterday, and I found that once I started reading it was difficult to put down and forget Lisbeth explains early on that the word Zornig is a family surname that was placed as her middle name The word in German means anger And she is fairly angry as she survives episode after episode of abuse and betrayal from the adults in her life This book is not intended to simply recount her childhood, it is meant to educate people on what it is like to grow up in an abusive, neglectful environment Thank you toCrossing for making this work available to English language readers Lisbeth survives her childhood, but does develop many of the physical markers of childhood trauma, one of the main ones being intestinal and immune issues Some of her quirks remain with her, perfectionism, fear of failure, at times people pleasing, at others having inordinate anger over certain triggering comments or changes in schedule She relates the side effects of trauma and abuse with refreshing candor and honesty As an adult who managed to graduate high school then college, she is asked to chair Denmark s National Council for Children She worked to help her nation align with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which all UN members have ratified with the exception of the United States The book opens with a section from the Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 191.States Parties shall take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent s , legal guardian s or any other person who has the care of the child Because of this opportunity to help others, Lisbeth s memoir is vested in learning what she can from her experience and share those insights in order to help others in similar situations She has a brief sketch at the close of the memoir of her top suggestions on how to best help abused and neglected children to give them a chance in life She has been remarkably successful in her career and what passes as family life in this era of serial relationships Understandably, traumatized people can have difficulty maintaining long term relationships and developing close relationships with others Her siblings, three brothers, did not fare as well She can identify what made the difference in her life that gave her the opportunity to become farthan her early upbringing would indicate Lisbeth does comment that she is not able to forgive her mother, but as a reader with a great deal of empathy and as a co sufferer in childhood horror, I do hope she will continue to work on that It is very healing and freeing to forgive That is where peace is found, in basic Christian practices she had as a child then later abandoned as life became so overwhelmingly awful A lovely summer memory of a time when my brothers were protecting me, but also a memory of a childhood without the boundaries every child needs A childhood characterized for many years by betrayal, violence, and sexual assault, all of which formed the person I am today This was a very difficult book to read but I enjoyed reading about the life and trauma that the author experienced While this was not an easy read,it was a great book but to read if you want to understand the severity of abuse A lovely summer memory of a time when my brothers were protecting me, but also a memory of a childhood without the boundaries every child needs A childhood characterized for many years by betrayal, violence,
