Murphy's Boy by Torey Hayden

When Torey Hayden first met fifteen-year-old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table, desperately afraid of everything around him. He had not spoken in eight years. Torey Hayden refused to call any child a hopeless case, but to help Kevin, she might need a miracle.

When at last she penetrated Kevin's silence, she discovered a violent past and a dreadful secret that a cold bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten. It would take all of Torey Hayden's devotion to rescue this "lost case." But with a gentle, patient love, Torey Hayden made that miracle happen.

I just finished this book and I must say it was wonderful. Torey Hayden's stories are so easy to read they almost seem to not be real. She makes non-fiction read like fiction. I'm personally working with troubled children this summer and I can relate to her books a lot.

This is by far the best book Torey Hayden has ever written. It is brutally honest and touching in a way that you will never forget. If you haven't yet read this book, run get it. You won't be able to put it down!

I loved this book. It not only made me cry, but also made me think. This book helped me find my true hidden happiness: Child Psychology. Tory Hayden uses great description and psychological terms. I could hardly put it down. It is a must read, and it activates one's emotional side.
