In the Goolrick home there was a law: Never talk about the family in the outside world never reveal the slightest crack in the facade. To all appearances they lived an almost idyllic life. Two respected charming parents everyone loved. Three bright smiling children. A lovely home on a quiet street nestled in a small college town. But behind the facade this family had created lurked secrets so dark so painful for one little boy that his life would never be the same. With devastating honesty and razor-sharp wit Goolrick looks back at this seemingly serene time and at the parents who gave him life and then robbed him of it who created his world and then destroyed it.
