What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind---and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, he tells their stories of trauma and transformation.

I’ll admit I didn’t give this much time to improve, but it wasn’t even worth waiting to see if it got better.

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

I had problems with the expectation of most of the characters in this book that 2 weeks should be enough time for someone to get over a decade of turmoil. I also predicted the end as soon as the villain was mentioned.

The narrative was excellent.

For months, Cathy Wood has fed the Alpine Manor residents, bathed them, and even moistened their eyes with artificial tears. To her, without their memories, the residents live in a state worse than death - and she has decided to relieve them of their pain. Wood and her lover, Gwen Graham, make a pact to kill those whom they were hired to care for. No one notices when an elderly person dies a quiet death, but as these two slip deeper into their plan, the terrible secret becomes unbearable.

Long, tedious, uninteresting. I only finished this book so I could be sure it was awful. I don’t do reviews often, so I wouldn’t give a bad review to a book I did not finish. I kept wanting this to get interesting. Surely there must be a great twist if so many people liked it. Sorry, I am not one of them.

Before Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich begins a summer job at a law firm in Louisiana, working to help defend men accused of murder, she thinks her position is clear. The child of two lawyers, she is staunchly anti-death penalty. But the moment convicted murderer Ricky Langley's face flashes on the screen as she reviews old tapes - the moment she hears him speak of his crimes - she is overcome with the feeling of wanting him to die. Shocked by her reaction, she digs deeper and deeper into the case.

Couldn't sleep after finishing this book. Not because it was dark or scary, but because I couldn't stop processing its message.
