Tammy Ruggles

Author Tammy Rugglesabout this book: In "The Incest Diaries", 8-year-old Becky tells her diary her deepest feelings and secrets--of incest, the foster care system, and her dysfunctional family. She's a confused little girl who wants to be loved, and she feels all alone in a world she doesn't understand.

Sadly, it isn't an uncommon story. As a former social worker, I know this story very well, and would like readers, especially foster children, to know that there are children who fall between the cracks and are betrayed by the people who are supposed to protect them.

I don't tell Becky's story to shock, or pull heartstrings. I tell it because it's an honest look at one child, who represents a wider phenomenon in our society.

Becky's story is one of tragedy and survival, and will make you want to take a closer look at the system designed to help them.

This book isn't to bash the foster care system in general, and foster homes offer refuge to children who would otherwise live in abusive, neglectful homes.
