I’d say I'm on an Odyssey like my book, but since we’re getting to know each other, I’ll stick with the simple stuff. So you’ll be tagging along with me on an adventure, or journey, if you like.
One thing you should know about me is that although I’m only eleven, I’m well-spoken and well-read. Daddy always insisted on us reading and learning all the time.
Anyway, today’s letter stands for Abuse and Abandonment. I’m young, but I’ve experienced both. You see, I’m pretty special. I have two mothers. One of them abused me ‘cause she was sick and couldn’t cope with stuff, and the other had to go away and leave me. I’ll tell you all about it as we go along.
I love talking with adults, so tell me a little about you. D’you like reading young adult fiction? Have you ever had to deal with abuse or abandonment? Come on, tell me what you think, and don’t forget to meet me back here tomorrow and I’ll tell you more about my life. I'll also tell you a bit about Jamaica, where I live.
