Now lie down and go to sleep  . Then you’ll be good and go right to sleep, just like I told you to, right? Danny said, feeling ridiculously pleased with himself for handling the situation so well.

Now lie down and go to sleep But- the girls said in unison. No buts, unless you want me to tan yours. Your mother and I trying to sleep, too, and you two giggling in here isn’t helping. You were not! Kaylee snapped. Uh-huh, they chorused and plopped their heads down on their pillows. Well, good night, ladies, and sleep tight.

Now I lay me down to sleep is a classic children's bedtime prayer from the 18th century. Perhaps the earliest version was written by Joseph Addison in an essay appearing in The Spectator on 8 March 1711. It says: When I lay me down to Sleep, I recommend my self to his Care; when I awake, I give my self up to his Direction. A later version printed in The New England Primer goes: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my Soul to keep If I should die before I 'wake, I pray the Lord my Soul to take.

Then, when their marriage broke down, they failed to protect her from sexual abuse at the hands of a family friend. After watching her adoptive mother drown on inhaled vomit, Eileen and her younger sister were taken into care, but her nightmare was to continue as she was subjected to further physical, sexual and emotional abuse. At the age of only seventeen, seven months into a secret pregnancy, she decided that the only way out was through a bottle of painkillers; when she survived and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, he became her lifeline.

As I lay me down to sleep This I pray That you will hold me dear Though I'm far away I'll whisper your name into the sky And I will wake up happy

As I lay me down to sleep This I pray That you will hold me dear Though I'm far away I'll whisper your name into the sky And I will wake up happy. I wonder why I feel so high Though I am not above the sorrow Heavy hearted Till you call my name And it sounds like church bells Or the whistle of a train On a summer evening I'll run to meet you Barefoot, barely breathing. As I lay me down to sleep (ooh la kah koh) This I pray That you will hold me dear Though I'm far away I'll whisper your name into the sky (ooh la kah koh) And I will wake up happy

As I lay me down to sleep I wish that you were here with me 'Cause I need some help to save me from myself And I know I shouldn't think about you but I do all the time. My oh my (Hey!) My oh my (Hey!) Oh man, I'm a stumbler, a straight-A rumbler Looking for trouble wherever I go And night time is calling, my judgment is falling And I won't give up till the sun comes up. All I know is that I'm losing my grip

This book was very moving. It was very well written and honest. Although there are some horrific stories in the book, and it's devastating to know that children are subject to behaviors like that all over the world, Eileen doesn't write in a way that begs for pity. She is simply telling her story the way her story is. I can really relate to this book and her writing in this manner, because when you are growing up, the things you see around you are what you consider to be "normal." Therefore, it may not seem strange that mom gets drunk every night, dad beats mom, mom beats you, or somebody molests you. As children, we are led to believe that our parents are going to do what's right for us and protect us, yet that is not always the case. I'd love to see a sequel to this book, just more about Eileen in general because it's comforting and encouraging to know that someone made it out of all that and still proved everyone wrong by doing something with their life.
It's a very sad book at times. Eileen is simply so depressed going through her teenage years, and she tries very hard to please everyone all the time. It's sad reading some of the things she writes and feels about herself. Unfortunately most of the people around her have other goals, and simply use Eileen as a means to an end. There are few people that come into her life and try to make a difference and really help her, and even when they do, she just can't open up to them because she doesn't have any trust left in her, it's all been betrayed, so she keeps herself behind a wall.
Although at times, this book does go very deep into stories of abuse, I believe that it is well worth reading. Sadly, Eileen is only writing about her reality, and it may be upsetting or shocking, but nothing can be done to help stop these issues unless more people become aware of them, and books like this help build that awareness.
