Review of “Throw Away Sisters” by Debbie Winnekins Deutch

A real page turner. I read it in one day! Deb did a great job moving the conversation along and giving voice to each character. It felt like these people were real. Even though it was fiction, the story reads as though it’s true. And sadly, her portrayal of child neglect and sexual abuse are accurate.

These are such difficult subjects, it’s not something most writers will touch. It’s hard to read when you first start the book. Deb obviously has a passion for the needs of children, revealing the lies of adults who appear one way and act another way at home, and giving voice to the older generation of women who’ve been raped without recourse. Kudos to Deb on a great book.
