My Abandonment

NOW A MAJOR FILM LEAVE NO TRACE DIRECTED BY DEBRA GRANIK AND STARRING BEN FOSTER AND THOMASIN HARCOURT MCKENZIE A thirteen year old girl and her father live in Forest Park an enormous nature preserve in Portland Oregon They inhabit an elaborate cave shelter wash in a nearby creek 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 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 blurry to me and even the climax was poorly described and left me wondering what actually happened It did make fun of stupid kids who drink to be cool which I enjoyed but at the end I was left wondering too much including details that the book supposedly described

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 Spare 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 in order to live her life the way Father has convinced her it must be lived means that even when she is free of Father in the physical sense he is still guiding her thoughts and actions She returns to the suburb where she was taken and realizes she is not like the people there or who she was when she lived among them Functionally she s an almost adult but she still retains the values that he taught her to be self reliant not to let people know too much about her to be constantly aware and in harmony with nature But there s also that creepy part that he taught her to look for someone not unlike who she was at 10 to be her daughtercompanionThe whole scene with Susan and Paul who they met in the yurt with all the electrical wires during the snowstorm was extremely creepy Who were those people Had Susan kidnapped Paul at a young age which would make them like us to Father s way of thinking Was she using crystal meth or something along those lines which would explain the lack of affect That Caroline pulled Father who had been electrocuted on the sled hid him during the party in the cave and afterwards found a place to secrete his body in the depths of the cave where he would not be found was fascinating This is an extremely thought provoking difficult read You want to root for Caroline and yet her choices are not the ones that most of us would make but they make sense given her circumstances

    Let 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 enou

    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
