Little did Johnny know that this little childhood bliss is to end soon when a visitor from America takes him to live with his family. In the land of the free, the young boy finds himself trapped in a world that's been turned upside down.
He finally meets his & real mother, but instead of joy at seeing his son, from whom she's been separated when he was just a baby, she stares at him as if seeing someone else and cringes at the sight of him. Instead of showering him with love and kisses, as a loving mother should, she showers him with beatings and death threats. Instead of cooking meals for her son, she serves him a plateful of insults. Instead of tucking him to bed at night, she continually kicks him out of her house so he ends up sleeping in friends houses, at the park, or on the streets.One heartbreaking moment in the authors life was when, after several plots to get him arrested, he straightforwardly asks his mother if she loves him. She looks him in the eye and simply answers, No.
