    I 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

    I 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.

    As 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 perspective.After reading some news stories about the true story behind this novel, it s evenintriguing to me

    Even 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 FLEW Both 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 deliversof an emotional punch Both ar

    Let me start with the following I am so freaking confused by this book.When 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 enough reason for me to be co

    4.5 stars Lots to love in this novel, starting with the cover That ghost like white horse is Randy, 13 year old Caroline s little plastic companion and familiar daily presence If she were a suburban kid living a mainstream life, she would have probably had a cell phone to fondle by now, but she lives in a hidden camp in the woods with her father and Randy accompanies her as she tells the story of her marginal existence Written entirely from Caroline s perspective, the s

    I had forgotten that My Abandonment was largely based on a true story The author s website has.pdf copies of the articles he was drawing from Somebody from Oregon, and maybe the Pacific Northwest in general, might remember when this was in the news, but I wasn t familiar with it The second half of the book is Rock s imagined version of what might have happened to Frank and Ruthie in this book, the girl is called Caroline, and her father goes by several names after they vani

    This was an interesting and absorbing book and made for a quick read I was somewhat familiar with one of the real life stories this book is based on, that of the girl and her father living in Forest Park After reading My Abandonment, I was left withquestions than answers there is no obvious line of distinction between reality and fiction here, and in some ways this seems a shame as the real life story is what brought me to this book I got the impression reading this that it sta
