  "Hamster Island" by alyssa (see profile) 08/23/14

This memoir captured me from the beginning. It is a fascinating story told from the authors perspective as she grows and comes to terms with her unique world. It covers a variety of themes including religion, sacrifice, courage, duty, freedom, compassion, and prejudice while looking at family dynamics and society\\\'s responsibility to citizens who need lifelong services. I can\\\'t wait to discuss this with my book group.

This book raised so many questions of a social concern with our group. The hardest thing to deal with was the filth described. Everyone felt the writing was very good and the book was compared on more than one occasion to The Glass House by Walls.
