Throwaway Girl by Kristine Scarrow #BookReview

Andy Burton knows a thing or two about survival. Since she was removed from her mother's home and placed in foster care when she was nine, she's had to deal with abuse, hunger, and homelessness. But now that she's eighteen, she's about to leave Haywood House, the group home for girls where she's lived for the past four years, and the closest thing to a real home she's ever known.

Will Andy be able to carve out a better life for herself and find the happiness she is searching for?

My first young adult novel "Throwaway Girl" was released in October 2014 by Dundurn Press. My second YA novel "If This Is Home" will also be released by Dundurn Press in 2017. I am currently working on a third YA book as well as a memoir of my relationship with my late father. 

Although I do some freelance writing, editing, and facilitating workshops, writing books is the ultimate for me! 

I have a special interest in writing as a healing art and I want others to discover how writing can be a useful tool to help heal and grow. I have the privilege of working as the writer-in-residence at a local hospital as part of their Healing Arts program.

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I am married and have three awesome kids, two dogs, and a chaotic but enriching life!

This book follows Andy. Andy has never had it easy. Abused by her mother and forced into foster care at a young age. There always seems to be something waiting in the wings of life to swoop and bring her life crashing down around her. But now that she is about to turn 18 and go into the real world, will she be able to handle the real world, learn to trust, and love?
