SOMEBODY'S SOMEONE: A Memoir.

Edition: First printing.

New York: Grand Central Publishing, (2003) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first book, her account of her life as "a neglected child who tries to fulfill her wish-to be a 'wanted and special child' - opens when she is 11. She's lived in a chaotic, violent foster home for as long as she can remember. After a brutal beating with a garden hose, she runs away to her well-meaning but ineffectual grandmother. From there, she pinballs from one relative or foster parent to another, all of whom treat her with indifference if not abuse. . . The author, who's now a hair stylist and owns two Bay Area salons, brilliantly portrays how what seems like 'in-cur-ridge-abul' to adults feels like simple self-defense to a child scarred by maltreatment."
