This is one of those books that I have had on my TBR for years. I finally bought it, waited months to start it, got a quarter of the way through it than put it down. Now that I've also downloaded the audiobook, I've finished it in less than 24 hours. It was so good, and I'm sad that I waited so long to read it. Definitely recommend. ❤️
Started the physical book a few months ago. I got about 1/4 way thru, and ended up getting distracted by another book. Figured I'd start the audiobook tonight. I've really liked it so far, and can't wait to finally finish it. 👌

42 ~ Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill (Kindle edition📱) ~ Started: 20.04.17 ~ Finished: 23.04.17
This is the second book I have read by Heather O'Neill & she never fails to amaze me with her writing, the power of her writing. Baby, the main character & narrator is unforgettable.
Appreciate gut wrenching story, but had to force myself to finish. Wasn't enjoying my reading time. Not bad writing, but maybe not the right book at the right time for me. Writing style was as if I was staring at a pretty pair of shoes, encrusted with actual star dust, catching the light of a thousand rainbows, but when I put my feet into them, they were the complete wrong size & shape. Painfully forced simile? Yeah. About five of those per page.
My pick for child protagonists for #day16 of #photoadaynov16 is this award-winning book by Heather O'Neill. Baby's story is heartbreaking, raw and at times terrifically hard to read, but her voice is unforgettable and authentic. A book that could easily run off the rails, but holds together for a wild ride. Note: trigger warnings for child abuse and prostitution.
