Heather O'Neill's Lullabies for Little Criminals gives us a glimpse into the daily life of a 12 year old growing up in Montreal. But Baby is no ordinary child. Raised by a young, single father struggling with heroin addiction, her experiences are simultaneously familiar and shocking.
This book has the power to remind us of the joy and wonder experienced by a child in even the most tenuous of circumstances.
