Book Review-my name is Tookie-Chariss K Walker

Monday, September 2, 2019

It was hard for me to read about the abuse both mental and sexual that Tookie was subjected to as a child. Luckily she was finally taken in by her grandmother (Tookie had been told by her Mother that she was dead)when her mother finally died, Her grandmother has always loved Tookie and did all in her power to bring light and love into the very young child's life. It took Tookie and her Grandmother with the help of a therapist many years to overcome what had occurred. It took the jailing of the man who had done the worst to her for Tookie to finally begin to heal.

She started to question who she really was--her gender identity. She figures it out and then is petrified that her Grandmother would stop loving her--Luckily this Grandmother really loved Tookie and accepted Tookie for who she was-- the story has a happy ending.

Some of the passages are pretty graphic as Tookie remembers what occurred in her very young life. Unfortunately, although this is a novel-it may be happening to children as I write. I just hope that they have someone who loves them unconditionally and will help to bring them back to who they really are!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Tookie, now fifteen-years-old, shares her nightmarish memories as a survivor of unspeakable and depraved atrocities committed by the very system in charge of her protection in this dark-fiction, tell-all novella. Lost in a corrupt 'system,' Tookie suffered mind-blowing abuse that would cripple any child. Although it's devastating to read about these horrific crimes, Tookie's inspiring hard-won recovery, and the devotion of her loving grandmother are breathtaking in this "based-in-part-on-a-true-story" novella.
