I’ve read Torey Hayden books before. She is a child psychologist who writes books are about kids she’s helped who are extremely emotionally disturbed. This book I almost DNF’D 2x. Not because I wasn’t enjoying the book, but due to the shock factor of how the child of the story, Jessie talks and the subject matter. I’m also spiritually sensitive, so there were parts I almost felt spiritually attacked. I persevered to the end and I’m glad I did. This has to be the most EXTREME case of hers I’ve read.
I’ve never read a book about a person who has RAD: Reactive Attachment Disorder and Lost Child shows you what a child is like who has this disorder. The characteristics of this disorder are not for the faint of heart, or highly sensitive person. I’m an empath, hence why I reacted to the story stronger.
I received my complimentary copy of Lost Child by Torey Hayden from William Morrow, care of TLC Book Tours. The views are mine and of my own choice. This book is worth reading, though it should come with a warning on the cover with how graphic it can be. I still am a fan of Torey’s work and hope she’ll write another book soon. Thank you for sharing Jessie’s story and how lives can be changed when we choose to reach out and care.
