The Wild Truth - Carine McCandless
When approached by Jon Krakauer for his book, his younger sister shared many of the family secrets but asked that they not be published. Twenty years after this story, she now shares these and tells her own story. Growing up with difficult parents both children were scared by their experiences and tried to distance themselves from their mom and dad.
Somehow I expected learn more about Chris and his story, but instead I felt trapped in the bitterness that the author feels towards her parents. It felt ugly and raw, and just made me feel sad and then annoyed that I wasted so much time reading this book. 2/5
