Our prisons, mental hospitals, and streets are filled with tragic stories like Tuesday Storms. Her childhood was riddled with torturous "games" and violent physical attacks. She was isolated from the rest of her family, locked in an attic with nothing but a bare bed and a bucket for a toilet, and fed just enough to keep her alive. The experts say its next to impossible to find the souls light in a dark past like Tuesdays. They say shell never trust again after being betrayed by the people she loved most, or silence the voices inside her head telling her shes worthless and unloved. Shes doomed to suffer a lifetime of depression and self-destructive behavior, and destined to be drawn to people who will again abuse her, or worse--she could become an abuser. Thats what the experts say. And the thing about experts is--theyre usually right. Call Me Cockroach is a chilling reminder of the unfortunate truth that no one survives the devastation of severe childhood trauma unscathed.For those of you whove read Byrnes compelling debut book, the Kindle eBook bestseller, Call Me Tuesday, this memoir unveils what became of the gutsy little girl who spent her early years at the mercy of a sadistic mother. To everyone else, its an honest glimpse into the tormented mind and troubled heart of a damaged woman determined to overcome the debilitating aftermath of a horrific childhood.
