Lullabies For Little Criminals

O'Neill, Heather. Lullabies For Little Criminals. HarperCollins, 2006.

Why did it take me ten years to read this book? It is incredible. I suggest it should be Recommended Reading for every teacher, social worker, law enforcer, and law maker.

Lullabies is told from the POV of Baby, through her tween and first teen (13) year, although she still sees the world through the magic eyes of a child. She lives in Montreal with Jules, her struggling father, fifteen years her senior. Poverty, drug use, mental health issues, immaturity, innocence, vulnerability--all interfere with this family's happiness.
