The ‘Life of a Bastard’ series tells the true story of Javier Soto’s soul-stirring journey as a child in foster care. Born into a hostile 1980s’ American society, Javier endures starvation, neglect, and physical abuse, leaving him in an inescapable darkness. This haunting account, told in Javier’s voice, captures the emotional transformation of an innocent child as he scrambles for survival in a world of betrayal, separation and an appalling lack of compassion.
