22 Houses Is Not a Home
By: Trevor McClelland
About the Book
22 Houses is Not a Home is a compelling and raw account of the author’s childhood and experience growing up in a world full of violence, abuse, and neglect, beginning with his mother and the various men she introduced into her children’s lives. When the abuse and neglect reach an apex, Child Protective Services intervenes, removing Trevor and his brothers from their home and funnels them into sometimes equally neglectful foster homes. As young Trevor cycles through the system, and several traumas, he develops and maintains a vivid imagination that allows real-world situations to seemingly transform into fantastical adventure scenes before his very eyes. He also created for himself, a dream home with a perfectly loving dream family, allowing him to escape the uncaring, cold reality of his own life.
