I do not believe that the book left out details of what occured; I have read and re read this book countless times, and am confronted by how awful and narrow minded Tina`s parents and sisters were. The constant and unjustified abuse, plus the attempts to confine her to their narrow and vile lives, shows how little the family cared for Tina.

I heard about this case at the time it happened, and have never forgotten it. The thing that struck me the most was that Tina had dreams of furthering and bettering her life. Being about the same age as Tina, it strikes home how much Tina could have achieved if she had escaped the family confines, and been allowed to follow her dreams.

Rest in peace, Tina.
