    One thought on “Catch Me Before I Fall”

    1. This is the story of Rosie Childs, she of many names and survivor of a most horrendous childhood.Born into a white family after her mother had an affair with a Chilean sailor, Rosie, Or Clare as she was then, never really had a chance. Her father probably never knew of her existence, her mother’s husband hated her from when he first say her, and her mother was a lost soul with no ability to look after her ever growing brood of children. At five, Rosie had assumed many of the parental duties in [...]

    2. I have just finished reading this book and found it incredibly interesting and moving. As someone who works in the British Mental Health system it was really good to be able to see it through a service users eyes and understand how these different incidences lead to others. People have described this book as depressing but I disagree, I would describe it as woman's real life experiences and whilst they are cruel and unpleasant the book goes on to say how she is dealing with them and making peace [...]

    3. A truly, heartbreaking story about a woman's life in a time when black people were still considered slaves and a shameful ''thing''. Also frightening to think that some doctors and nurses's mentality in some hospitals haven't changed much since 19th century; they still act mechanically, without actually being interested in their patients life details or motives that made them act in a certain, suicidal way.

    4. This is the very depressing story of Rosie Childs, a woman who goes through many names each time she reaches a new point in her life. She was the black daughter of an all-white family- a symbol of her mother's infidelity. She was raised in a abusive home, where she and her siblings were constantly taken into foster care. The last time they were ripped from their mother, they were placed into a boarding home in a nunnery, where once again they were mistreated. She was placed into foster care agai [...]

    5. Gosh did this take a long time to read! I'm just going to give some simple feedback:The book is about Rosie Childs (who changes her name constantly through her life) who had endured many abuses and horrific "homes". Too many people come and go too quickly for her to be able to sort her self out but everyone just thinks she's insane and no-one bothers to try to find out WHAT it is that has caused her to not like men, not like to sleep for a long time, not like ice cream, not like her body etcBut [...]

    6. I picked up this book in my local library because I thought the description of a black child growing up in a white neighbourhood sounded interesting. However, if you want a read that won't depress you, this book is not the answer. Rosie has one awful thing after the other thrown at her, and as for the revelation at the end of the book I saw it coming to be honest, but that doesn't make it any less disturbing and upsetting. This is less about the struggle with race that I read it for and more abo [...]

    7. Rosie Childs had such a hard time growing up, and I sympathise with her and anyone in her position.She writes with such emotion, all about herself growing up and everything she had to go through. Rosie was born as Clare Malone, in an all white area of Liverpool. She was neglected, ignored, and beaten by her alchoholic stepfather and struggled with everything. As she grew up, she has a couple of breakdonws and eating disorders, but she pulled through, living evidence to all suffering. This is a h [...]


    9. A troubling memoir of a girl who grew up in a very troubled Liverpool "home." Hard to read because it is so sad. The author describes her desperate younger years and her later adult years troubled by mental illness and eating disorders, etc. She survives as a fragile single adult, but what amazing courage.

    10. Rosie's memoir just goes to show you how important every part of childhood is. I always knew that love and acceptance were just as vital as food and shelter and her life story is all the proof one needs to understand just how important those things are. This just might be one of the saddest true life stories I have ever read.

    11. An interesting book. A child is neglected and abused and this has consequences for her as she grows up. This book is well written and interesting because it's about racism towards a mixed race child. There aren't enough books about racism.

    12. This was a sad but than up moving book of a young girl who feels she does not fit in her world because of the color of her skin and is different than her siblings and later is abused

    13. True story, very depressing from start to end! Not sure how I finished the book Anyways, I wish her a lot more luck in the future.

    14. Catch Me Before I Fall is a story about Rosie Childs, who is abused and neglected as a child and struggles with mental illness as an adult. It is not just a story about a colored child trying to fit in in an all white neighborhood. It is also a story about a woman, who struggles with childhood trauma and feelings of self-loathing and worthlessness. In a way, the book is also a critical commentary on the British mental health care system as it tells the story of a person, whose life could have be [...]
