Description:

Foster Girl opens with a bullet to the head along with a family history of abandonment, alcoholism, drug use, abuse, incarcerations and a tragic death, all of which forces Georgette and her baby sister Jean-Marie into the foreign world of foster care. From there, Georgette has no choice but to raise herself and her sister through a series of institutional residencies and unloving foster homes. Complete with transcribed court documents, letters, photos and narration by a spirited yet desperate teenager, Foster Girl recreates a wildly unpredictable coming-of-age story of one girl's struggle to survive long enough for life after foster care. Those already familiar of the child welfare system or interested in knowing more, and fans of "Girl, Interrupted," "Push, a Novel (Precious)," and Ashley Rhodes-Courter "Three Little Words," will also appreciate reading this unforgettable debut memoir. Foster Girl was edited by Alan Rinzler, the man behind Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye" and Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear & Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72."
