This true, first-person memoir of a boy’s perseverance in the face of family dysfunction and adversity in the Montreal area of the 1960s and early ’70s offers a harrowing look inside a child’s soul-crushing loss of innocence between the ages of 4 and 16. Wawa, one of seven children born to an alcoholic father and clinically depressed mother, refuses offers to fix his broken glasses, wearing them as an outward statement of his heartbreakingly broken life. His hunger for love and guidance and his will to survive to adulthood in the face of fear, loneliness, anxiety, hardship and poverty will have readers cheering him on. This is an account that resonates with the lives of thousands of abused and neglected children who remain invisible. Wawa is the voice of the silent ones.
