A child is like a bird in a cage-he knows no other life. A bird in a cage appreciates anything that comes its way. When the door of the cage opens, it's for food, water, or cleaning time. Then the door of the cage closes, the bird can't get out, and the cat can't get in to hurt the bird. As a child it was the same for me-my family was the cage...and the cat. A Bird in a Cage is based on the true story of Jacques Lapointe, who likens his life to a war zone. It's a story of love, hate, child abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder-an insider's view of a family torn apart by a lack of love and respect. Written with heartbreaking honesty, this memoir is sure to leave a lasting impression.
