Lists with This Book. Aug 25, Vibina Venugopal rated it it was amazing. After reading this book I kept telling myself how lucky I was to be surrounded with all love and care of family. Being pampered with the warmth of mom and dad To read horrible tales of fiction never bothers me for a very long time as I know that may not have happened to real people, but reading a memoir like this is a stressing affair as I have a habbit of immersing myself completely into a book, I get attached to the characters very easily and a book like this gets me into a saddening mode.

Luckily she finds solace and encouragements through unknown people. Being anonymous adds up her morale to pour in all her troubles She then abandnoed onto writing a bookAbandoned. Isn’t this an inspirational tale of a girl who faced all the tribulation to end up into a stable life again with hopes.

Inspite of describing all her abandohed childhood she quickly points out that this book is not about cornering anyone but to find courage inspite of odds Anya’s writing is flawless though bit repetitive as she describes her time living in a caranyone can call me partial for not complaining about it I only wish that people think before taking any hasty decisions especially when it involves a child.

Edit- After reading such accounts you realize that the life is truly unfair. There are so many children that are abused on a daily basis and we cant’t do anything.
Abandoned by Anya Peters
Child abuse sbandoned a really sensitive issue leters I feel it should be handled very carefully. Its been 2 years since I read this book, but whenever I see the cover,I remember the story and instantly feel depressed. I don’t have the courage to read something like this again. Anya is a remarkable woman. I am happy that she is doing well in life! Jan 19, IceJewel rated it really liked it.
But, the synopsis of this book just got me into reading this one! I almost skipped the first half of the book.!! Reading about what happened to her just made me cringe many a times! The second half of the book talks about her homelessness as an adult and how she tries to piece her life back together. Apart from this, the book is also about survival and courage! Its truly a wonder that a ppeters survived through all this!
Its such a heartbreaking book, that I just don’t know what peterx I should write about it. Apr 09, Kayla kaylareads rated it really liked it. How do you even review this? It must take a lot to endure what she has and then to go on to document it in a book.
It was well written and her sadness and wanting to belong grabs you from its pages. Anya is nothing but an inspiration. Jun 05, Ashleigh Sapphire rated it it was amazing.

I love the way the story draws out raw emotion from the reader; it made you cry when Anya did, made you laugh when she did. It is written in a way that ahandoned you feel like she is sitting right next to you, whispering the words in your ear, telling you, in full and amazingly deep detail, exactly what happened in her life and her emotions through the struggles and good times.
