My Niece's First Novel Is Out, And Selling Well

Hand Me Down, by Melanie Thorne, described as a "semi-autobiographical" novel.  It is apparently selling well.

I read the sample on Amazon, and because I was in midst of this disaster (we took Melanie and her younger sister into our home for a while), it looks like it might be too painful for me to read.  But I do think, if you read it, you will see why I have become the social conservative that I am: watching Melanie's parents damage everything and everyone around them was a sobering reminder that what consenting adults do often does enormous damage to kids, who have only very limited choices about how to deal with bad parents.
