i need book recs.

so, i have been trying hard to reconcile w my kids.
after my divorce, the family flew apart. it had to happen. there were already rifts.
my 2 girls totally blame me for their mental illnesses, going back to high school. and the middle one was tentatively dx'd as bpd, mostly on the basis of her telling lies about ppl to get them in trouble. me, 1st and foremost, but she also did it at therapeutic school.
she swore i beat her regularly, and is so convincing, the other kids believe it even tho they didnt see it.
all of them can point to 1-2 times i lost my shit, and took a poke or a swat at them. that's it. but somehow that is enough.

anyway, she was talking to me before she moved out of town. then i pissed off the youngest, so she is back to not speaking to me.

so, here is where the book thing comes in.
a thing she did w her counselor in hs was read books. she used to be a voracious reader. i dont know any more. it was something that worked rly, rly well for her.
so i had a thought of finding a book for her to read about what it is like to raise a kid w a mi.
i have reconciled w the ex, and he has been a go between to see if we can get past this crap.
i dont think he really understands what i went through, and if i found the right book, i would try to get him to read it first. just having him get a better picture cant hurt.

so, thoughts?
