    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBI like this book in a similar way to how I enjoyed Room they are both innocent perspectives Coincidentally I didn’t realize My Abandonment was based on actual events or that it was meant to be YA it was recommended to me by a goodreads page that is definitely adult I figured out it was actual events pretty fast because it states that some things actually did happen at the beginning of the book The story is of a man and his daughter who were discovered living in a park and as I read I could tell it clearly follows the actual story for the first half of the book and then it became clear that no one knows what happened to these people for the second half I have found out since that no one knows what happened These parts are b

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBAs a Portland resident it was fun to hear descriptions of the city and Forest Park I enjoyed the writing style from 13 year old Caroline's perspectiveAfter reading some news stories about the true story behind this novel it's even intriguing to me

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBLet me start with the following I am so freaking confused by this bookWhen I read the back of the book I knew it was about a father and his 13 year old kid and they're trucking around all of Portland and living in the woods and all that That much is true And before I attempted to really get into the book I did some research on here and found that mostly it was well liked and the ones that weren't well liked well didn't give eno

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBI have mixed feelings about this book It was a fast thought provoking read but it left me with many unanswered questions particulary since it was based on a true case The beginning of the book seemed to include many facts that had been published in news articles but the ending was Peter Rock's fictional version I found some of this not to fit the characters The reference to Elizabeth Smart in the Acknowledgments was disturbing to me

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBA compelling and thought provoking book I live in Portland so I was familiar with the setting in Forest Park the city I was also familiar with the true story behind this novel A father daughter spent four years living in Forest Park in a shelter the father built He home schooled the daughter using his own knowledge a set of encyclopedias The father was a veteran had a small military pension so they were able to go into the city buy groceries clothing as needed go to the library They used a nearby creek for washing grew vegetables When they were found living there the girl age 12 13 tested far above average academicallyPeter Rock’s book is based on their story takes off from there Caroline is the narrator though I’ve read some criticism of Rock

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBEven though I have alredy sent this I am updating for my Best of 2009 list and this review goes along with Jennie Shortridge's WHEN SHE FLEWBoth of these are based on the true story of the father and pre teen daughter who lived off the grid in Portland’s Forest Park for four years but each author treats the story a little differently Rock’s story is told in an almost surreal and disassociated manner and Shortridge delivers of an emotional punch Both are interesting and would be great for book groupsIf you want to r

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBWhen I read the blurb for this book I couldn't wait to read it Totally my kind of story mixing human relationships against the backdrop of nature And it didn't disappoint in fact it exceeded expectations I didn't expect it to be so well written Why? I admit I'd never heard of writer Peter Rock before But based on this book I hope he has some awards waiting for him down the road He's another one of those writers who flies under the radar because they don't get the big promo deals But I thought this book was MUCH impressive than Mathilda Savage and from what I've been reading on goodreads could even compete with Room If you can take a few dark scenes I guarantee you this book will have you mesmerized with its story telling ability and pitch perfect prose HIGHLY RECOMMEN

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBSpare prose and an intriguing narrative with a narrator whose view of the world has been skewed by her unusual experiences with Father living in a cave in the forest park in Portland as well as the streets and condemned hotels of the city Caroline's judgment is clouded by her love for Father and her need to continue their routines and follow his leadSPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT The fact that Caroline wasn't who she had made herself believe she was kidnapped at 10 from her foster family was not a huge surprise but somewhat of a surprise as the narrative was steering me towards thinking her father was paranoid schizophrenic which would explain why he always thought people were watching him The whole psychology that Caroline has bought into

    My Abandonment Epub ´ Hardcover abandonment pdf, My Abandonment ePUBspoiler alertI found this retelling of an actual event where a girl was found living with her dad in Forest Park in Portland really compelling until the last 50 pages or so when the main character a young girl who was explained with such compassion throughout the first 34 of the books starts acting completely out of character Throughout the book we're reminded that she's a self suffici
