Lisbeth Zornig Andersen is the prime example of when you know better, do better Growing up with the trauma she did, it would have been all too easy to be the same level of parent her parents and stepfigures were, but instead she turned her life into being the exact opposite Her story of trauma, healing and ultimate success in not passing on generational trauma is inspirational and heartbreaking Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for letting me review this book. What a fantastic, heart wrenching book It hurt me so much reading about what the author went through during her childhood I think this book did a great job of showing some of the errors in orphanages and what makes a decent household, even for children in the foster system Brilliant. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review I had a hard time getting into this book, I think because of how the translation worked, but once I did, it held my attention Often it is hard to read because of the neglect and abuse she and her family experienced At times it was uplifting to see the people who truly cared about her Overall, this is a sad memoir but something that needs to be known so these children and adults get the help they need and deserve. Anger Is My Middle Name is a heart wrenching, disturbing, and raw memoir about a girl who has experienced so much, and has shown immense bravery and courage to share her story with the world She does this to educate others to encourage people to speak up to help people recognize the signs of someone else who may be going through it and may not be able to speak up themselves Abuse is a horrible act that haunts victims in so many ways, and though it is so hard to read about, it is also so important for people to be aware of, be familiar with, or even be able to relate to and know that there are others out there experiencing the same thing and who may now know the signs they should be aware of and be able to reach out for help Rating memoirs has always been something I don t really agree with or like doing, but, in this case, it was easy to do I think the author did a fantastic job depicting her vivid and emotional past with us, using a writing style that really captured the pain and history well.
