Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

In "Blackbird," Jennifer Lauck has penned a touching story that details her memories of an unfortunate childhood. It is a compelling tale of heartache and loss, one which has left its imprint on many. Unfortunately, major aspects of her telling are comprised of wanton embellishment and outright fabrication.

My name is Jonathan Lantry. I was Jennifer's step-brother during the period that comprises the second half of her memoir and I have refuted her account of our shared childhood. Should you have an interest in exploring the veracity of "Blackbird," you may visit my blog at blackbirdthetruth.blogspot.com. In this blog I deal specifically with Jennifer's account of her "abandonment," an experience that even she has admitted played out a bit differently than her book would suggest.
