A major work that deserves to stand among the very best accounts of state terror and those who had the strength and luck to survive it. Imprisoned without charges, she spent almost a year blindfolded and bound, cut off from friends and family, including her child, until being inexplicably released. Partnoy's glimpses of her life in prison are understandably disjointed and meandering, but they stand as a record of character and fortitude. I just loved it because of its immense human depth and high quality of writing. I absolutely loved this book! It's one of the most captivating novels I've ever read- it had me totally hooked! By the middle of the story I felt like I knew the characters personally, as the story was delivered so well with such intriguing detail. It's so beautifully written with such emotional and deep descriptions, making the characters spring to life in a way that I couldn't get enough of them. I just can’t image how Partnoy was able to endure all the pain and suffering she went thru being there. I was looking for a new author to read. This book was recommended to me, and it certainly was a good recommendation. I have told all my friends about it and hope they enjoy it as much as I did. Well written and riveting, you'll find this edgy story hard to put down. This book will become a classic text on the Argentine Dirty War.

The stories in this book are some you will never forget. Partnoy describes life as one of the "disappeared" in Argentina. From the day to day survival in the Little School to the after stories of those that lived and died in The Little School, Partnoy brings you in to these people's lives and you can feel for each and every one of them.
