Orphan: A True Story of Abandonment, Abuse and Redemption by Roger Dean Kiser

Stars: *****

I must have said “Oh my Goodness” or it’s equivalent at least 10 times throughout this book. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down and read it straight through without stopping for any reason. It took me one hour. This is a horrifying book. It appalles me that anything like what happened to this boy could happen to anyone, let alone tons of kids in orphanages. I’m glad things are a little better now a days but we still have more work to do. This book is NOT for children and only select teens who are ready for something as horrifying and sickening as this story. I commend Roger for living through what he did, I probably would have just given up.
