“As sad as Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild was, the truth behind Chris McCandless's decision to divorce his parents after graduating from college is even more heartbreaking. Carine, his sister, does an admirable job telling the story of their shared, difficult childhood -- rich in material goods, but poor in parental love and support. In public, their parents were wealthy and admired pillars of the community; in private, they abused their children both physically and emotionally. The truths Carine shares do much to redeem her brother's memory and to demonstrate how strong they both were in the face of adversity.”
— Susan M. Taylor, Market Block Books, Troy, NY
