Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. This book is about the child abuse that Stuart and his sisters went through at the hand of their stepdad and the life that Stuart lead in prison after killing his stepdad. Thank you for my grandchildren and for the unconditional love they bring. All he wanted Once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down. I felt the authors pain and torment at the hands of his abusive stepfather, and unlike many other childhood memoirs, this struggle did not end when the abuse ceased. The rage, pain and confusion boiled over in Stuart and he fought back, killing his stepfather. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Very bad and very upsetting and disgusting what that poor kids went through.
