    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    Story

    I saw the series before I realized it was a book. After knowing there was a book, I excitedly hurried to Audible to download, I couldn't WAIT to start it! While this account of Piper Kerman's experience in a minimum security prison was extremely interesting and enlightening, it was NOTHING like the series. The only similarity between book and series is the fact that the main character's name is Piper. Just about every scene played out in the book never happens in the series and even the parts that match up, don't match up entirely. Even the characters are different, with the exception of Pop (in the book, Red in the series). I can see why though; the book, while very intriguing makes for poor TV drama. I enjoyed both the book and series, but the series was by far much hotter ;)
