An inspiring tale of a woman who grew up as an outsider in her own family. Born black to a white mother, Rosie Child's colour was proof of her mother's infidelity. Beaten by her mother's husband and neglected by her alcoholic mother, Rosie Childs endured one trial after another. Catch Me Before I Fall documents her rocky journey from this unorthodox childhood and many spells in psychiatric institutions as an adult, to a more positive life. It's a moving story of one woman's will to survive and ability to hold hope for the future despite adverse circumstances. Rosie is donating money made from this book to a special project with Crisis, a charity which helps rebuild the lives of homeless people.
