My Abandonment Read & download è 7 Store perishables at the water’s edge use a makeshift septic system tend a garden even keep a library of sorts Once a week they go to the city to buy groceries and otherwise merge with the civilized world But one small mistake allows a backcountry jogger to discover them which. A 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 s writing in this regard I thought it was very well done Her voice is simultaneously innocent and fierce very detached yet filled with the ghost of hidden anger sadness Rock uses Caroline s perspective language ability which is high but spare in its expression throughout It s apparent that Father taught Caroline many things but he never taught her much about feelings or how to express them When he wants to talk to her about important things he does so in a very factual way or he uotes from his favorite writers Caroline is never going to do the reveal Her life is all about hiding She is reporting what she wants us to know that s all you re going to get I enjoyed the spare detached uality of the writing which seemed sometimes elegiac sometimes so brutally factual I could hardly breathe I find my reaction to many books is that they need an editor This is not one of those The first part of the book is almost idyllic as you learn about Father Caroline s lives in the park The relationship between them seems sweet at first but always has an edge that leaves you wondering Of course they are eventually found the rest of the book focuses on their journey after that One thing I really enjoyed about the book was its very subtle creepiness What sounds idyllic isn t First foremost we re not really sure about Caroline s relationship with Father We know that they care for one another as best they can in their own ways But we know Caroline is in or entering puberty and an unanswered uestion is how this might affect her relationship with Father When they re not in the woods things can be scary Caroline talks about living in a hotel that s about to be torn down how she has to negotiate through the partially ruined building stay locked up when Father isn t there to stay safe Father negotiates with people who are stealing transporting copper wire There is some harrowing information about people who are tapping into electricity Caroline finally reveals a little about her past which brings up other uestions about her relationship with Father My heart stopped for a moment when she mentions in passing handcuffs Who is Father really Rock is genius at giving a mostly sympathetic portrayal of a man who was at best unconventional caring smart a victim of PTSD or at worst a kidnapper child molester high functioning mentally ill person These glimpses of who Father is or might be left me wondering which was fine with me I also thought Rock s handling of Father s gradual deterioration was very well done I thought Father as a character maintained his integrity throughout Can a good man be misguided Of course Can an evil man be good in some ways Who knows Which kind of man was Father really As a reader you have to form your own conclusions In Caroline we see that we all learn from our circumstances and upbringing no matter what that is though we might be horrified by what s happened to her we also see that she s strong intelligent resourceful and detached Another source of subtle creepiness comes when Caroline starts to wonder about having a companion that she can bring into her life We are left wondering Is she just lonely at that point Does she think of her father think I too can choose someone make them mine How will this play out for her I think some reviewers felt confused by her actions toward the end She seems to be reaching for what we might call normal life with one hand rejecting it with the other I found this to be understandable within her character also It s pretty clear to me that she wantsboth How would you not I also loved the play on words themes that comes from thinking about abandonment within the context of this book Every problem I have comes from believing something to be true that is not true Caroline writes in her journal This is a powerful statement that might apply to most of us In Caroline s case particularly so This book brings up and leaves unanswered many uestions If you need your books tied up with neat pretty little ribbons so that you know what happened every character is typed and labeled you won t like it If you like to think draw your own conclusions you want a book with compelling characters subtle creepiness

My Abandonment Read & download è 7 Derails their entire existence ultimately provoking a deeper flight  Inspired by a true story and told through the startlingly sincere voice of its young narrator Caroline My Abandonment is a riveting journey into life at the margins and a mesmerizing tale of survival and hope?. When 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 RECOMMENDEDUpdate 1618 Rented a movie this weekend from the library Leave No Trace 2018 A little ways in realized it seemed awfully similar to one of my favorite novels Worried Rock was getting ripped off Then realized it WAS based on Rock s powerful novel While my preference is still for the book for fans of this story do see the movie Beautifully acted
