Title: My Abandonment
Author: Peter Rock
A thirteen-year-old girl and her father live in an enormous nature preserve in Portland, Oregon. Once a week they go to the city to buy groceries and otherwise merge with the civilized world. But one small mistake allows a backcountry
jogger to discover them, which derails their entire existence.
Inspired by a true story and told through the startlingly sincere voice of its young narrator, Caroline, My Abandonment is a riveting journey into life at the margins and a mesmerizing tale of survival and hope.
