Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you knew a child who was being abused? If that child was a member of your family? Would you call the authorities and have the child taken away, or would you turn a blind eye? 

These are the kind of questions that Lost in Thought provokes. The author, who lived through the atrocities mentioned in this audiobook, paints a vivid if disturbing image of child abuse and how it affects the psyche as one grows older. What begins as abuse leads quickly to suicidal thoughts and loss of control.

Lost in Thought is the unbelievable true story of a child who was in this predicament. His mother, who was hooked on prescription pills, sexually abused him for years and convinced him that nothing was out of the ordinary. Family members knew of the horrifying situation yet did nothing to stop it. He distanced himself from his family as he grew older only to become more of an outcast.

This is the powerful true story of a man who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome on the autism spectrum in his mid-20s, overcame adversity, and took back control of his life before it was too late.

It took great courage to write this book!

It took great courage, as well as love for children who are suffering, for the author to write this book. As I listened this book, I could feel the young boy’s pain, his isolation, and his rejection by his family. The authors insight into the value of the suffering and how it strengthened him in his adult life was the crowning jewel of this book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is living in this type of situation and to foster parents. I wish I had read this book when I was caring for foster children.

Well?

This book was really not for me. Instead of a flowing narrative, the author just listed events of his childhood. After a while it seemed monotonous.
However, the narrator was quite good.
I was given a copy of the audiobook. This is my honest review.

EXCELLENT READ!

I absolutely loved it! Although this book was hard to imagine at times, it did not lack entertainment! This story is full of emotions that will grip your heart! The narration is superb and gives the story that extra flair! The author did an excellent job with his story especially his pain and triumphs. This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last! I look forward to reading more books from this author. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
