I Am Not My Brother’s Keeper, by Amelia Bradford

Different

This is a true story about children hurt by their own parents. It’s about not doing the easy thing, the common thing, and turning away, and it’s about the long, hard, expensive fight to do what’s right. It’s a success story, too, (if that’s the right phrase) about a family torn apart, about parents prosecuted, convicted and jailed and children given another chance. It’s the story of a flawed justice system that, for all its errors, all its faults, in this case, did what we hope it will. It’s about what the words – family, love and responsibility – really mean, and, most of all, it’s an example for those of us who care about kids enough to do more than talk about it.
