    "Very heartbreaking story! I never read books like this because they're really depressing. This book kept me wanting to read more because I felt so bad for the main character. It's actually a memoir which makes it even more sad. If you like raw and honest books, then this is the book for you. Just don't forget the tissues!"

    " adopted a daughter at 5 1/2 years old. We were her third set of parents. She developed Reactive Attachment disorder. She had behaviors of hoarding and gorging food, stealing, lying ....the book tells you the behavior and how to parent it. I read the reviews of the people that read this book. I am wondering, did they have a child with RAD? Because this book was very helpful, it isn't outdated. You have to parent the child differently. It is along the lines of love and Logic parenting. The book is a great resource if you are living thru the Hell of RAD. 12 people found this helpful"
