Somebody's Daughter: A Memoir

by Ashley C. Ford Author

In this powerful memoir, Ashley Ford tells the story of growing up a poor Black girl with an incarcerated father. His absence looms large over the book and over Ford's life as she confronts all the normal challenges of growing up without his support. Moreover, Ford doesn't know why her father has been incarcerated. This memoir reveals the complex dynamics that families with incarcerated parents have to navigate, and the traumas that can ripple out from that absence. Follow along with Ford as she traverses her teenage years and ultimately learns why her father is in prison, and gain insight into the web of problems created by the American carceral system.
